Resources for Homeless Veterans

As you know, the recent federal push to end veteran homelessness has brought tremendous resources to Connecticut for veterans. In fact, we have the resources to house all veterans experiencing homelessness in the state -- but we need your help to make sure that all homeless or at-risk veterans are quickly and efficiently referred to these programs.

In cooperation with the Connecticut Heroes Project, we've put together one-page information sheet to help providers navigate the main resources available to veterans. The sheet provides information on referring to VA services, and to the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) rapid-rehousing program. Download the referral sheet now.

Please note that SSVF is administered by four grantees in the state, one of which has been assigned as the principal point of contact for each of your agencies. A list of these pairings is available online and in PDF format. (If your agency was inadvertently left off this list, feel free to contact any SSVF provider.)

See for more information, as well as for customized sheets with the contact information for your SSVF partner agency. Thank you for your help in quickly connecting veterans to these incredible resources!
