Veterans Services

Southwest Solutions and our partners offer a comprehensive array of programs to assist veterans who are homeless, formerly homeless, or at-risk of becoming homeless. These programs provide services and resources, including the opportunity for housing or housing assistance, to help the veterans avoid or recover from homelessness, develop self-sufficiency and reintegrate into the community.

Programs

Our Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP) helps homeless vets find meaningful employment so that they can be productive members of the community. HVRP is funded by the federal Department of Labor. The program assists homeless vets with resources, vocational training and job opportunities.
