The only other requirements for Veterans to receive services are for them to desire a change in their lives and a willingness to work a program designed by our program staff. For Veterans living in our Transitional Housing Program, it is required that they remain free of any drug and/or alcohol use and participate in periodic activities as requested by program staff.
Yes, on weekdays. Monday through Friday, our Homeless Veterans Day Program operates from 8:00am-4:00pm, and is open to walk-ins.
Yes, but only for current residents of our Transitional Housing Program.
Any homeless Veteran wishing to become a resident of Veterans Place should start be coming into our Service Center between 8:00am-4:00pm, Monday-Friday to speak with a staff member. Interviews are conducted weekly, and can be coordinated through the Homeless Veterans Day Program staff.
No. While we are closely affiliated with the Veterans Administration, we are an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, incorporated in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and dedicated to the purpose of helping homeless Veterans.
Generally speaking, the only primary requirements are that individuals seeking services are homeless (or experiencing a housing crisis) and have served in a branch of the United States Military at some point in their lives. There is no time in service requirement; only that the Veteran did not receive a dishonorable discharge.
