Description
Homes for American Heroes and Stand Down House recognize the need to expand its services to include, First Stop Veterans Resource Center, South. Specifically for veterans and their families that are homeless and/or at risk of becoming homeless or have other risk factors. The cause of homelessness among veterans are difficult to disentangle, the same things that predict homelessness among the general population-medical issues, economic hardship, lack of affordable housing , access to support networks and personal characteristics-also predict homelessness among veterans. Veterans, however face the additional challenges when trying to overcome these obstacles. Many veterans are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic-Brain Injury, physical limitations. Other obstacles identified are highly stressful training and occupational demands that can affect personality, self-esteem and ability to communicate nontransferable skills to civilian jobs and prolonged separations from traditional support systems, such as family and close friends. We recognize the need to provide a safe and supportive environment where the veteran will be provided supportive services and linkages to community partners.
