Veterans

The problems that resulted in veterans becoming homeless are deep-rooted, complex and far-reaching.  These problems cannot be adequately addressed by one service provider or by one service intervention alone.  The All Faith Consortium  (AFC) recognizes that a lasting solution to the problem of homelessness has to involve the coordination of multiple service delivery systems in a multi-faceted approach.  Only by addressing the full-range of physical, mental, social, employment and life skills needs can homeless veterans achieve long-term self-sufficiency and truly break out of the devastating cycle of homelessness.

The All Faith Consortium offers an employment-focused training through a continuum of supportive services in its Homeless Veterans' Reintegration Program (HVRP). The program is intended to provide services to assist in reintegrating homeless veterans into meaningful employment within the labor force and to stimulate the development of effective service delivery systems that will address the complex problems facing homeless veterans, female veterans and veterans with families.

AFC employs a "bridge program" model that develops the homeless vets skill set prerequisites for entry into and successful completion of a structured training program supported by an aggressive career services employment based component, transitional housing, and permanent housing strategy.
