Local / Non-Governmental Agencies

On the local level, there are a multitude of organizations that can help veterans. These can be categorized as county-level veteran service offices which operate in each individual county, and local non-profits which support veterans through social services, housing, and employment resources.  

Local non-profits may also administer federal and state programs, including:

  • Supportive Services for Veterans and Families (SSVF): Rapid rehousing and eviction prevention.
  • Transitional supportive housing.
  • Permanent supportive housing (project-based HUD/VASH).
