We intentionally identify and help the veterans who need us most – those who have nowhere else to go or the deposit required by the landlord, and will be sent back to the streets, shelter, or car, even if they have children. But you can change this.
We partner with the VA homeless program social workers who help the veterans find appropriate housing of their choice, and then secure their long-term HUD VASH housing voucher. When the veteran is ready to sign the lease, if the veterans has nowhere else to find the deposit, rather than being sent back to the streets the VA social workers access our on-line system and complete the short referral form requesting the deposit, and hit send.
All conforming referrals are IMMEDIATRLY approved, and the social worker and landlord receive an emailed approval of the deposit, with the check being sent the same day.
So rather than be sent back to the streets, shelter, or car, they cross the threshold into their own home for the brave in the land of the free. Most don’t even know it was us who did it, so you will be the Guardian Angel who answered their prayer.
