Transitional Housing: Northern California

Transitional Housing for Veterans

The Transitional Housing for Veterans program assists veterans in increasing their income, moving into permanent housing, and accessing medical, dental, mental health, and other services

The program offers 80 beds for both men and women for an average length of stay of six months as they work towards removing the barriers they face to allow them placement in permanent housing as rapidly or as appropriate for their needs and progress.

The program offers temporary housing while assisting clients with locating permanent housing, employment, and other supportive services that will increase both earned and benefits income and allow them to return to the community and sustain their independence.
