Day Program


Through our Day Program, veterans from shelters and on the streets are transported to the Veterans Place facility on Washington Boulevard where they are provided meals, clothing, showers, and access to telephones, computers and TV. Those who are willing participate in case management, health-related referrals, employment/educational assistance, financial literacy workshops, and other services designed to address the root causes of homelessness, including chemical dependency and mental illness.  By leveraging in-house services with a variety of community partners, the Day Program operates as the front line for homeless vets and a gateway to other programs and services in the region.

The average daily participation in the Day Program is 16. It is the only drop-in service for homeless veterans in the region.

1 of only 22 drop-in services for homeless veterans in the United States
