Improving the housing stability of homeless Veterans

Operation Home

Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) is funded by the department of Veteran Affairs to improve the housing stability of homeless Veterans and their families in Linn, Jones, Benton, Cedar, Iowa, Johnson, Washington, Dubuque, Black Hawk, Buchanan, and Delaware counties. We call our program "Operation Home."

In addition to stable housing, Veterans who enroll in the Operation Home Program are eligible to receive case management services, connections to Veteran and mainstream benefits, and temporary financial assistance.
