Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)

St. Vincent de Paul began its Veteran’s program in 2013 to serve low-income Veteran households using a Housing First approach. St. Vincent de Paul’s SSVF program covers 12 counties in Ohio (Allen, Auglaize, Champaign, Clark, Clinton, Darke, Greene, Mercer, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, Shelby) and 4 counties in Indiana (Wayne, Fayette, Franklin, Union).  SSVF strives to help clients onto a path toward greater stability and growth.  We work in collaboration with other community resources to provide a wide range of services to both the Veterans and their families.  Eligible households receive case management, financial assistance, and/or community connections to obtain and maintain stable housing. 

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
