Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)

St. Vincent de Paul’s Veterans’ ministry uses a Housing First approach to serve low-income Veteran households who are homeless, at risk of homelessness and/or need help transitioning to permanent housing.

We strive to help Veterans and their families onto a path toward greater stability and growth.  We work in collaboration with other community resources to provide a wide range of services in 12 Ohio counties (Allen, Auglaize, Champaign, Clark, Clinton, Darke, Greene, Mercer, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, Shelby) and 4 counties in Indiana (Wayne, Fayette, Franklin, Union).

Eligible households may receive temporary financial assistance and ongoing individual and family support including:
Housing counseling • Personal financial planning • Healthcare referrals •  Help with childcare • Legal aid • Transportation • Daily living needs

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.
