I am not homeless but I live in very bad conditions and I take care of everyone off of a fast food job. Why do I have to live on the sidewalk before the VA will help me get affordable housing for me and my family? I can't afford to feed everyone and I also take care of my husband. I need advice on how to get a place to live that is safe, affordable, and clean.

SGT Carl Watson These programs are always full and the waiting list can be years.

Call [login to see] . Go to your local Vetcenter if you have one. Speaking to your local Congressman or Representative can sometimes help. Macdonalds, Burger King, Paneras,amd other fast companies have upward mobility programs. These firms will pay you while working and train you for a higher position if you they think you are an excellent worker. Where are you stationed?

Several negative responses here, I've not had that experience in dealing with Veterans in my area. I am with the relief committee for my VFW post and in conjunction with the DAV, we have been able to help several Veterans get "hooked up" with the right people. Perhaps other areas don't have the personnel or contact points. Call 877-4AID-VET [login to see] ) they can point you in the right direction.

I am a an unemployed USAF Veteran who is permanently disabled since 2013. I currently live in my parents living room, but desire my own quarters. My credit is also poor and I’m currently working with a law firm to try and improve my credit. This program is part of RENT TO OWN. Self explanatory, but I must get my score up to 640 before I can apply with them.

My question to you is will you programs help me, too? I’m hoping the aforementioned group will be able to help me but it is as yet unknown.

I am very interested in working with you to acquire housing assistance.

Many thanks in advance for your assistance!
Julie

Hello Sgt Snider. SSVF is a program for impoverished Veterans who are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Although I certainly understand that you would want your own place, from what you describe you probably don't meet that criteria. You may want to seek out local affordable housing programs. If you call [login to see] you can connect to HUD's housing counseling locator service.

I did early this year research the VA's Homeless Program. I can't remember where I found the website but under the va.gov one should be directed to places or businesses in one's area. This program may be or should be related to assist Homeless veterans. Good luck.

I did view the VA website and it referred me back to the University of Memphis law office to assist veterans and they are/were a joke.
