Supportive Services for Veteran Families
In 2013, InteCare was awarded a Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) grant from the Department of Veteran Affairs. The purpose of the SSVF program is to promote housing stability among very low-income Veteran families who reside in or are transitioning to permanent housing. InteCare’s SSVF program operates in Marion, Madison, Shelby, Hancock, Hamilton, Boone, Johnson and Vigo counties. The program provides the following services as they relate to housing stability: outreach, case management and peer support services, assistance obtaining VA and other public benefits, housing counseling and assistance with housing searches, financial planning as it relates to stabilizing housing, transportation, child care, and temporary financial assistance as it relates to stabilizing housing.
In order to receive supportive services under this program you must:
- Be a Veteran, or the member of a family in which the head of household, or the spouse of the head of household is a Veteran. A Veteran is defined as a person who served in the active military, naval, or air service, and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable.
- Meet income eligibility requirements: Your household annual income cannot exceed 50% of the area median income (AMI).
- Be homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless.
For further information or to arrange an eligibility screening appointment please contact (855) 896-4345 or firstname.lastname@example.org. SSVF staff are available to make community presentations and can make arrangements to meet with SSVF applicants at other locations when necessary.
