The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, in conjunction with local agencies, has launched a program to help keep U.S. service veterans and their families from becoming homeless over the holidays.

A coalition including Abode Services, Operation Dignity, LifeLong Medical Care, and Building Futures with Women and Children are working proactively throughout Alameda County to provide rental and deposit assistance, case management, primary and mental health care, and other support services to veterans as pre-emptive measures, to prevent veterans from becoming homeless.

Operation Dignity, in conjunction with the City of Alameda Housing Authority, operates Dignity Commons at Alameda Point, which is transitional housing for veterans who have already become homeless.

The new, preventative, program operates under the umbrella of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program.

For example, veteran families in arrears on their rent, and at risk of eviction over the holidays, or at risk of having their utilities cut off due to non-payment, may be able to get financial assistance to catch-up on back payments.

The coalition is asking the media, and members of the public, to alert at-risk veteran families to the help available by telephoning (510) 844-0781.
