Department of Labor awards North Side Housing - Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) grant
June 27, 2013 - The U.S. Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service today announced the award of 121 grants to provide more than 14,000 veterans across the nation with job training, job placement, housing and other services. The grants were awarded through the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program.
“Military service members and their families have been asked to make tremendous sacrifices for this nation. Although homelessness among veterans has fallen, too many of our heroes cannot find jobs or homes,” said acting Secretary of Labor Seth D. Harris. “These grants will provide those who have served our nation with the means to find meaningful civilian employment and chart new directions for their lives.”
The HVRP grant will help homeless veterans reintegrate into society and the labor force while providing effective services aimed at addressing the complex challenges that homeless veterans often confront. The services provided by grantees will include job placement, on-the-job training, career counseling, life skills and money management mentoring, as well as help in finding housing.
North Side Housing partners with the Center for Housing and Health
Starting on March 1, 2013, North Side Housing and Supportive Services is proud to be partnering with the Center for Housing and Health through the Housing for Health SHP Project. The Housing for Health SHP Project will initially provide 15 units for males and females that are currently homeless. Participants for this program will be referred through the Central Referral System (CRS), which serves as a single point of access for Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) to connect the most vulnerable households with the appropriate housing and services.
