Homes for the Brave – West Haven
Homes for the Brave West Haven opened in the spring of 2022. The program is housed in two locations in West Haven, CT near the VA Medical Center and can serve a total of 14 male Veterans experiencing homelessness at a time, providing them with temporary housing and on-site support. Each Veteran is provided with his own room, support with basic needs (food, clothing, etc.), with a case manager, and with support from peer support specialists in the evenings and on weekends.
The goal of the program is to help each Veteran reach his self-determined goals to move into permanent, safe housing, increase and stabilize his income, and work toward his self-determination goals. Our goal is to assist the Veterans we serve and to provide the support they need to help them move on to independent living. Each Veteran has access to other Homes for the Brave resources, including vocational training, clinical treatment, and ongoing support after they leave the program. Homes for the Brave West Haven is operated in partnership with the US Veterans Affairs Grant and Per Diem Program, the VA CT Healthcare System, and the Veterans Support Foundation, which owns the buildings where the program is housed.
