Centerstone offers Supportive Services for Veteran Families to provide assistance to veterans and their families who are at risk for homelessness in Tennessee and Kentucky.
Through the SSVF program, Centerstone’s Community Support Specialists provide guidance and coordination to Veterans and their families, helping them make informed decisions, understand their options and gain access to VA benefits. In addition, Community Support Specialists connect Veterans and families with other community resources including:
Interested Veterans and their families work with a Centerstone Community Support Specialist to complete an eligibility screening and assessment. Once enrolled, participants in the SSVF program work closely with Centerstone Staff to identify barriers and determine what support services are necessary to meet essential needs.
A grant-funded program through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, SSVF is available at no cost to eligible candidates in 20 Middle Tennessee counties and 7 Kentucky counties.
The program is offered to single Veterans or Veteran families where the head of the household or spouse is a Veteran. In addition, eligible participants must have a household income that does not exceed 50 percent of the median area income.
Lastly, Veterans and their families may be eligible for the SSVF program if they have recently lost their home, are struggling to keep their current home, or are currently homeless but expect to be in permanent housing within the next 90 days.
