Supportive Services for Veteran Families

The Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program was started in 2008 and has grown to cover the majority of the United States, starting in North Dakota in 2012. The goal of SSVF is promoting housing stability among very low-income veteran families who reside in or are transitioning to permanent housing. SSVF supports a Housing First approach by helping the veteran family meets its primary need of housing, while addressing barriers to housing stability.
