Support Services for Veteran Families
Project HOME provides a variety of services that cater specifically to veterans and veteran families currently without homes or in danger of losing their homes.
The Philadelphia Alliance for Supportive Services to Veteran Families (PASSVF)
The PASSVF is a partnership between Project HOME, The Philadelphia Veterans Multi-Service & Education Center, Impact Services Corporation, and Homeless Advocacy Project intended to create a seamless, coordinated system to prevent homelessness or rapidly re-house veteran families transitioning from homelessness.

Veteran Outreach Program
A member of Project HOME's Outreach team pairs with a member of our local Veterans Affairs office to conduct street outreach once a week targeting veterans living on the street. The outreach team visits with approximately 30 to 40 veterans in the Center City area regularly.
St. Elizabeth's Recovery Residence
Project HOME has 12 units specifically designated for veterans at our St. Elizabeth's Recovery Residence. This site is a transitional housing program for homeless men with a primary diagnosis of a substance use disorder with or without a co-occurring mental illness; residents pay 30 percent of their income towards rent and $100 per month for the meal program. The program operates on a level system and has 24-hour staffing.
