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.
