Resources for our:
Veterans, ExOffenders & Homeless

Advise for Finding Help: There are the eight major components (groups of services) available to help returning Veterans, ExOffenders and those experiencing Homelessness that can help them transition (ReEnter) back into society.

In order to find service providers with the below Topics / Items available to you, you will need information on where you can find those service providers via a phone, the Internet, VSC’s website, Connect2Help and CHIP’s Handbook for Help.

Contacting organizations with case workers, support coaches, counselors, mentors, or Veterans Service Officers (if a Veteran) is the best way to help find the individual "Topics" within the below components.

Goods, Services & Programs: When calling service providers for help, you should always call more than one service provider for the things you think you need. Usually, no one service provider can provide you or your family with everything you need. It is recommended that you consult with an experienced counselor, support coach, case manager or Veterans Service Officer from one of the below service providers that regularly works with Veterans and active Military personnel. By having one of them interview you, they can better help you determine what goods, services, programs or benefits you may need, and/or be entitled too.
