A Homeless Veterans Transitional Residence and Sustainability Program
New Vision Outreach Ministries, in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs, is offering the Journey Home Transition Program (JHTP) - a homeless Veterans transitional residence and sustainability program. JHTP desires to enhance the quality of life for homeless Veterans suffering from addiction and dual diagnosis (mental health issues + substance abuse) by promoting and providing quality residential stability, increased life skills and self-determination. The JHTP residence will be a 5,400 square foot, twenty-four (24) single bedroom facility located on Anderson Station Rd. in Chillicothe, Ohio. Our mission is not to be a long term shelter; JHTP is a program that offers housing during a transitional phase in the life of the Veteran. Upon the acceptance of each Veteran, a uniquely designed Veteran Development Plan (VDP) will be created. The areas of training covered by the VDP include, but are not limited to, financial literacy, employability training, substance abuse counseling, etc. The VDP will be constantly monitored to measure the goals for each Veteran. Although each VDP is unique, the end goal is the same; self determination to sustain long-term permanent housing.
The Department of Veterans Affairs' Healthcare for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) offers the Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem Program to fund community agencies providing services to homeless Veterans. The purpose is to promote the development and provision of supportive housing and/or supportive services with the goal of helping homeless Veterans achieve residential stability, increased skill levels and/or income, and greater self-determination. The VA estimates that as many as 131,000 Veterans are homeless on any given night. New Vision Outreach is committed to investing in the lives of these Veterans through the JHTP program by ministering to the whole man - body, soul and spirit.
