Veterans Services Overview
Our goal is to end veteran homelessness. We are working with the federal departments of Housing and Urban Development and Veterans Affairs to administer the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program. This program provides rental assistance to homeless veterans and offers ongoing VA supportive services
Voucher Payment Standard
People using the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program will benefit from a set amount of money paid monthly to their landlord to offset the cost of rent. You can find the maximum amount a family can receive, although your monthly assistance may be different.
Home Buyer and Homeowner Programs
Veterans can apply for help to buy a new home or repair the one they live in.
Other Programs for Vets
- Sometimes it is difficult to ask for help. The County of San Diego funds a 24/7 support line run by veterans for veterans. It is called “Courage to Call” and all you have to do is dial 2-1-1 or go to the website 211SanDiego.org/Courage-to-Call. They can help you with the rigors of transitioning to civilian life.
- Each summer the County participates with dozens of other organizations and hundreds of volunteers in a “Stand Down,” a multi-day event that helps homeless vets find food, clothing, showers, recovery providers and other services including medical, dental and legal assistance.
