We seek to improve the lives of those who served our country and their families through our Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) and Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program (SSVF).
Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri provides services to those who served our country and their families through two programs: Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) and Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF). We work with veterans who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, have limited income, or lack employment. Our highly qualified case management team works with clients to overcome the barriers they are facing to create lasting change and long-term success.
CCSOMO Employment Specialists work with veterans to identify their household income needs and employment goals. Together, they identify barriers to reaching these goals and establish a plan to overcome these obstacles. Our Specialists act as a bridge between the veteran and local employers and assist in referring veterans for healthcare and legal services assistance through the support of community partners.
This program strives to increase individual and family income by equipping homeless veterans with the tools they need to successfully be reintegrated into the labor force.
SSVF addresses the harsh reality of homelessness among veterans and their families. By providing case management and other supportive services, CCSOMO promotes and supports housing stability among very low-income veteran families.
This program consists of a combination of services including rapid rehousing and homeless prevention services. Our goal is to provide immediate housing or maintain current housing. Once housing is addressed, clients and case managers work together to identify barriers that might jeopardize housing stability. Clients are provided with resources, including budgeting and financial counseling, and connected with community partners that address their long-term needs.
