Permanent and Supportive Housing
The New England Center and Home for Veterans is dedicated to ending Veteran homelessness by providing the tools and support that lead to independent living. The Center provides an array of supportive services for Veterans who are homeless or facing the possible loss of housing. Permanent and Supportive Housing services are provided for any Veteran, regardless of length of service or discharge status.
The following housing services are available:
- Permanent Onsite Residences – NECHV has 97 apartments on site at 17 Court Street, Boston. The on-site apartments are available to ensure long-term housing and provide a community of support for Veterans.
- Supportive Services for Veterans Families (SSVF) – Available for Veterans and their families experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of losing their home. SSVF promotes housing stability and provides the skills necessary to maintain long term, independent living. SSVF counselors provide services including case management, housing and financial counseling, and assistance obtaining benefits and services.
- Community-Based Case Management – Provides time-limited case management services to eligible Veterans and their families. The goal of the program is to help Veterans who were previously homeless and have since transitioned into permanent housing maintain their housing. The role of the Community-Based Case Manager is to assist Veterans in maintaining their permanent housing. The Community-Based Case Manager will meet regularly with each Veteran to learn more about their history and service needs in order to connect them to services, benefits and resources that will best aid in housing retention.
