supportive services for veteran families: helping veterans secure and stabilize their future through permanent housing.
This program is for men and women who served in the U.S. Military and their families, who are now homeless or in danger of becoming homeless soon, and wish to obtain and maintain permanent housing.
Of the approximately 9,000 people who are homeless on any given night in King County, roughly 2,500 are veterans, according to the United Way of King County. After bravely defending our country, many of these former service members return home without viable job prospects or stable housing.
SSVF case management works with veterans to find (and more importantly, keep) permanent housing. Program participants may be referred to employment and training programs, financial and community resources, and helped accessing benefits. Financial assistance may be available for short term rental support, deposits, child care and other household needs.
eligibility: Individuals must live in King County, have any discharge status other than Dishonorable, have a family income less than 50% of area median income or less than $30,800 for a single individual. (If you don't have documentation of these requirements, we can help you obtain them.)
