The Court Avenue program provides permanent supportive housing for up to 32 veterans who have been chronically homeless and experiencing severe and persistent mental illness and/or substance abuse issues.
The primary goal of the program is to reduce chronic homelessness among veterans who face challenges with maintaining sobriety, wellness and safe, affordable housing. We stress and support a clean and sober living environment. We have found when veterans devote themselves to these lifestyle changes, the success rate of them staying in housing greatly increase.
This program provides permanent supportive housing to those veterans who have had severe issues maintaining stable housing. Veterans enrolled in the program reside in their own one-bedroom apartment. The central building provides space for the social services groups, socialization and 12 Step group meetings. There is also an open covered pavilion for gatherings when the weather is suitable.
