What is Home at Last?
Home at Last is a program of The Kitchen Inc. that works to end Veteran homelessness in our community. Home at Last is funded by the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) grant from the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
Who We Serve
Home at Last serves very low-income Veterans and their families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. We serve families in Greene, Christian, and Webster counties. More information about specific requirements can be found on our webpage or by contacting the office at (417) 225-7410.
What We Do
The focus of the program is housing stabilization. Home at Last provides individualized supports to help Veteran families rapidly secure and maintain permanent housing, which may include:
- Outreach to connect eligible Veterans with the program
- Case management
- Referrals for other services
- Assistance in obtaining mainstream and VA benefits
- Rent assistance
- Utility assistance
- Household items
We work with landlords to find housing options that are safe, affordable, and desirable to our clients. Partnering with landlords allows us to house Veterans who may have significant barriers to finding permanent housing on their own.
Veterans exit the program when their housing crisis has been resolved and they are stably housed. Veterans are typically in the program for six to nine months.
Ways to Help
Your donations allow us to end homelessness for more people in our community.
