Property owners can play a key role honoring those who have served our country by working with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and non-profit organizations serving veterans to make their rental units available to veterans who have experienced homelessness and are participating in the Housing and Urban Development-VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) or Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) programs.
Likewise, in the private sector, solutions are created by collaborating with banking institutions who have developed mission statements that help revitalize neighborhoods by donating properties through their Community & Urban Stabilization Programs (CUSP). Through CUSP, nonprofit organizations may receive REO donation properties to be used to further their missions.
Having obtained certifications into both these type of programs, the WSF has created and nurtured a three-pronged long-term case management, supportive services and permanent housing mechanism.
First, we understand the mechanism required to acquire real estate properties in furtherance of the HWHP mission to provide safe, decent and affordable housing.
Second, we understand the case management mechanism required to locate our targeted female and homeless veterans.
Third, we understand the supportive services mechanism required to assist with rent payments in order to obtain and sustain permanent independent community housing.
These mechanisms are the foundation and cornerstone to the WSF’s Homeless Warriors Housing Program.
