Housing Support for Veterans

[This is important relayed information, received today. Homeless Veterans should certainly look into benefiting from a housing-support program the government provides. While the 'early' dates on the schedule, below, have past, there is still time for veterans to get to an application-preparation meeting.]

The Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Department of Veterans Affairs Supported Housing (HUD-VASH) Program, through a cooperative partnership, provides long-term case management, supportive services and permanent housing support. VASH recipients receive a permanent rental subsidy through “Housing Choice” section 8 vouchers in conjunction with long term supportive services to foster stability and recovery from physical and mental health issues, substance use, and functional concerns contributing to or resulting from homelessness. To be eligible for this program, Veterans must be VA Health Care eligible, homeless and income-eligible. Requires participation in long-term case management services.

"Requires participation in long-term case management services" means the veterans will be DIAGNOSED in the medical records as SERIOUSLY MENTALLY ILL, ADDICTED, and ALCOHOLIC FOR LIFE and required to:

Mandatory never-ending "How do you feel?" group therapy.

Mandatory take handfuls of Psycho-Wacko meds that don't work.

Mandatory conversion to the very offensive & hostile 12-Step AA/NA Religious cult and attend their church meetings for the rest of your life.

The only places that take the VASH vouchers are know as INSANE ASYLUMS for veterans because the VA has staff, armed guards, and snitches watching every move the veterans make....
