Over 70% of these veterans come to us earning between zero and $5,000 per year. Services include job readiness training, certification, and placement for individual homeless veterans. Our Social Services for Veteran Families (SSVF), at 2403 Caroline – (713) 754-7059, strives to leverage funding and our numerous community partnerships, to prevent homelessness and enhance the housing stability of very low-income veteran families. Since loss of a job is the # 1 trigger causing homelessness, this program has a strong job placement component. Our goal is to outreach to 300 low-income veteran families, to enroll 150 families, to place 100 family members in jobs, to provide Temporary Financial Assistance to 75 families, to link 100 families to new public or VA benefits, and to place 100 families in housing they can afford. To qualify, the veteran families must be homeless or at risk for homelessness and earning less than 50% of the Area Mean Family Income.) Our Returning Veteran Program, in Central Placement at 2525 San Jacinto, helps all veterans (regardless of homeless status or type of discharge) to find and retain employment.

Veterans Program Conference in Washington, DC
Three CRR staff members attended the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans in Washington, DC from May 28-30, 2014. They are Darryl Harper, Cheryl Turner and Marcela Clay.

The conference included open sessions and workshops. Some of the workshops were about the national homeless Veterans justice initiative, fostering rural housing stability, needs of minority populations, and transitional housing.

The keynote speaker for the Open Session was Thomas Perez, Secretary of the Department of Labor who spoke on the innovations, courage and perseverance that brought success to the “End Veterans’ Homelessness” program. Cautioning that “the prevention mission will be ours forever – we must make certain Veterans in crisis will never again be left to fend for themselves on the streets of the nation they served to protect.”

Two primary issues addressed were social security benefit training and finding homes for Vets. A website was supported to provide assistance that is called O-Net, My Next Move for Veterans.

Cheryl Turner gave a national call-in presentation for the VAMC Point of Contact (not related to the conference, but held at the same time). She spoke on accessing the Veterans Administration and presented such quality information that conference speakers referenced her comments in their speeches.

Facebook: I need your help! Join me in asking the Houston City Council to act now to provide basic regulations for payday and auto title lending here in Houston. These lenders target those that are in a financial crisis and have few options, then charge extremely fees and interest (between 500% and 800%)! Tell City Council it is time now, not next month, to provide the same regulations that Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso, and six other Texas cities have already provided for their residents.
The next meeting is Tuesday, December 17th 2013.
