Veterans Transitional Housing
Turning Point Foundation’s Street Outreach Program showed that Veterans are at least 20% of the homeless population and 30% of those were suffering from mental illness. Turning Point felt compelled to take action and we have expanded our programs to address the individual needs of our veterans bringing together all the social services in Ventura County creating a safety net of support for those that have given so much. We remodeled a building for the Veteran’s Transitional Housing which opened in August of 2015.
Turning Point’s Vet House provides transitional housing for up to 15 Veterans, with the goal of Veterans obtaining permanent housing placement within six months. If a Veteran has not found housing within that time an extension may be approved at the discretion of the V.A. and TPF Vince Street Veteran’s transitional housing staff. Displaced veterans complete a thorough intake assessment to identify their areas of strength, vulnerabilities and needs. At the Vet house, veterans are given referrals to outside agencies & resources to focus on their needs, assistance with employment, completing housing applications, as well as direct case management services (that assit with building self-esteem and finding permanent housing) to better thrive in the community. Often a Veteran will experience issues with alcohol or drug addiction. These Veterans are offered referral services to assist them in making better choices and getting their life back on track. In the past year, 18 veterans were able to move into permanent housing through outreach and collaboration with our VA partners.
