Services for Homeless Veterans

Goodwill is proud to participate in Cincinnati’s Homeless Veterans Reintegration Projects (HVRP) and the VA Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF). Assistance is available for career planning, job placement, and finding housing. Residential programs, counseling, food, clothing and monetary assistance are available for those who qualify. Funders for Homeless Veterans programs include the Department of Labor and the Veterans Administration.

All services include:

  • A comprehensive individual needs assessment
  • A personalized plan that will address the veteran’s employment history and needs
  • A case manager who will assist the veteran with job development and placement
  • Assistance in locating safe and affordable housing

Homeless Veterans Reintegration Projects (HVRP)

The Homeless Veterans Reintegration Projects (HVRP) are employment-driven Department of Labor funded programs designed to provide the supports and assistance needed for eligible veterans to obtain employment, housing assistance and economic stability. Each veteran is assigned a case manager who provides assistance in all aspects of helping the veteran rejoin their community as a fully integrated member.

Goodwill’s HVRP services are available throughout the greater Cincinnati and Southeast Indiana areas, as well as in Adams, Brown, and Clermont counties in rural Ohio.

VA funded “Per diem” residential program

Goodwill also operates a VA funded “Per diem” residential program which is a program for eligible homeless veterans in need of employment assistance and intensive and holistic services in order to achieve long-term self-sufficiency. The goal of all participants is to ultimately achieve full-time employment within the community.

VA Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)

In addition to the above programs, Goodwill operates the VA Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF), which is designed to provide rapid re-housing for eligible veterans in danger of losing their housing or who have just recently become homeless.

  • The completion of a comprehensive individual needs assessment
  • Development of a plan that will address the employment history and needs of the individual
  • A case manager who will assist the veteran with job development and placement
  • Assistance in locating safe and affordable housing
