Our priority is to our Veterans!

Our program transitions homeless Veterans off the streets or out from under bridges into permanent housing, treatment, and appropriate employment.  We develop the social, emotional and employment skills that sustain independence, and connect them to the VA, to their County Veteran Services Officer (VSO) and to local resources for eligible benefits.

The Journey Home loves our Veterans, so we lower the barriers that would otherwise prevent a homeless Veteran into placement and provide the specialized programing to support them.  We personalize our programs and services to support Veterans through their recovery.  Patience, with accountability, provide the Veteran stable support as they stay engaged in our programing.  Mistakes are used as a stepping stone in the development of not only new skills but of confidence and hope.

Veterans with Purple Hearts, and Silver and Bronze Stars, walk into our doors homeless.
Homeless Veterans are heroes of this great Country and are numbered amongst the wounded.

Our 15 beds are seldom empty. In 2019, we had:

0
Veterans helped off the streets.
0
Veterans helped to find their own home.
0
Veterans assisted into employment.
0
Veterans case managed into VA Benefits.
0
Veterans case managed into non-VA Benefits.

EVERY DAY, The Journey Home saves the lives of Veterans.

Here’s a testimonial from one of our past clients:

My dad moved into his new Apartment yesterday!
I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything The Journey Home and everyone else who helped him and donated today.

He hasn’t had his own home since I was a little girl due to his struggles and you all gave him a 2nd chance at life.

I just got the 2nd happiest phone call I’ve ever received tonight. He loves his new place.
The first one was when he called to tell me he was going to The Journey Home to try and get better.

I haven’t heard happiness in his voice in years, and It’s because all of you.

Thank you again! I’ve waited to hear him happy for a very long time.
