Veterans facing imminent homelessness, or who are currently homeless – call Volunteers of America at 1.844.4.VOA.Vet to speak with a service coordinator today. The CARES Act provided almost $3mil to help Veterans in Montana and Wyoming.

To get and keep Veterans off the streets, help Veterans at risk of becoming homeless, and to minimize the Veteran population in shelters the Veterans Administration has made additional funds available for Veterans living in Montana and Wyoming through the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, operated by Volunteers of America.

Along with the funds comes temporary qualification and rule changes: re-enrolment of Veterans previously exited from the program, a temporary waving of the enrollment limitation length, changes to the limitations for transitional accommodations before permanent housing is found, and an allowance for a COVID-19 friendly remote intake process.
