Veterans Program

The Hope Center was awarded

a Per Diem Program grant for veterans in September 2008 by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs. The Hope Center receives a daily per diem payment for serving up to 30 Veterans.

To be eligible for the Grant Per Diem Program, a veteran must have a discharge from the service for reasons other than dishonorable. The Hope Center assists these homeless veterans by providing them with help in the areas of recovery, employment, and mental health.

The Veterans Coordinator also assists veterans with obtaining copies of their DD214s, and with determining what benefits they may be eligible for through the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, to include health care, education, etc. This program also allows homeless veterans who participate in the Recovery Program, the Employment Program, and the Mental Health Program, to live at the Hope Center at no cost to them while they are getting their lives back on track.
