Home At Last is a housing first program that provides case management, housing assistance, and wraparound services for Veterans and their families who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless.
With the help of our housing staff, participants find and apply for permanent affordable housing in the community. The program offers temporary financial assistance to help with application fees and rent until participants can become self-sufficient. In some cases, Home At Last can provide temporary financial assistance to prevent a Veteran or Veteran family from being evicted.
Once safely housed, participants work with a case manager to complete a housing stability plan. The housing stability plan allows participants to identify their unique barriers to housing stability and set goals to overcome these barriers. Case managers walk alongside participants to offer resources and support on their path to self-sufficiency.
Case managers connect participants to wraparound services based on their unique needs. These services can include:
- Food pantries
- Medicaid, Medicare, SNAP, TANF, WIC
- Transportation (bus passes and car repair)
- VA services
Wraparound services are designed to connect participants to resources in the community that they can continue to use after they exit the Home At Last program. These services create a safety net to prevent homelessness in the future.
