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, Clay and Vigo counties. The program provides the following services as they relate to housing stability: outreach, case management, 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.
