From Homeless to Housed

“I went from homeless to housed with a full-time job within four months of participating in this program. Kept me afloat through the COVID crisis when I was laid off with a special extension to help me continue paying rent, as well as emergency food services for several months. They also gave me furniture, food, a laptop, and several other amenities as a direct result of participation in the program. I can say I would literally have none of these things without the amazing staff at VLP. If you’re a struggling veteran and you’re not utilizing their services, you should be.”
