Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)

Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) promotes housing stability among very low-income veteran families who reside in, or are transitioning to, permanent housing. We work to help homeless and near-homeless veterans (individuals or families) in Linn, Benton, and Lincoln counties get access to housing and services. The goal of the SSVF program is to provide case management services focused on obtaining permanent housing solutions.

To be eligible for services, you must:

Together, we develop YOUR housing plan.

We help you increase your income.

We connect you with the VA to access any benefits for which you could be eligible.
We help you find employment or training opportunities.
We can assist with deposits, move-in costs, budgeting, childcare, clothing vouchers, transportation and other needs that affect your housing crisis.

How do I get help?

A case manager will assess your needs and situation to create a plan that will connect you to the right resources to help you find or maintain housing. To schedule an appointment, call 541-704-7638.

Please bring the following documents to your first meeting.  If you don’t have something, we can still help:

  1. Photo ID (everyone age 18 or older)
  2. Social Security Card (everyone in household)
  3. DD214
  4. Proof of income
  5. Bank Statements for 90-days
  6. Current rental agreement
  7. Proof of residency including eviction 
  8. Notice, shelter referral, or other documentation

Don’t think you meet the criteria?  Call anyway! In addition to the SSVF program, CSC offers other housing programs and may be able to provide you with linkages to other services provided by our partners.

Funding for this program made possible through the department of Veteran Affairs.
