Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)

St. Vincent de Paul began its Veteran’s program in 2013 to serve homeless Veterans and their families who are in need of housing assistance. The goal of the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program (SSVF) is to promote housing stability among very low-income Veteran families who reside in or are transitioning to permanent housing. Eligible households receive case management, financial assistance, and/or community connections in order to obtain and maintain stable housing. St. Vincent de Paul’s SSVF program covers 12 counties in Ohio (Allen, Auglaize, Champaign, Clark, Clinton, Darke, Greene, Mercer, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Shelby) and one county in Indiana (Wayne).

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Be a member of a “Veteran family”: Either (a) a Veteran, or (b) a member of a family in which the head of household, or the spouse of the head of household, is a Veteran.
  • Have very low-income (household income does not exceed 50% of area median income)
  • Be homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless
