Support

The NECHV serves more than 1,000 Veterans each year, both on-site and in the community. The Center is dedicated to maintaining a low barrier entry criteria to assure Veterans who are experiencing challenges and need a bed have one available with minimum prerequisites for program entry. Every Veteran who comes to the Center for services is then assisted by an individually assigned clinical case manager, housing specialists, and support staff to enable success and ensure that the best and most effective resources and support are available. Many of the Veterans the Center serves are experiencing homelessness because of the effects of physical disabilities, mental illnesses, substance use, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The NECHV’s robust wrap-around services assist Veterans in obtaining and maintaining stable permanent housing at a pace that is safe and manageable.

NECHV offers on-site at its downtown Boston location, 97 Single Resident Occupancy apartments for permanent residents and 190 transitional beds for those who are seeking a permanent home. The Center provides on-site permanent supportive housing, and employs a skilled and dedicated housing placement and assistance staff that helps Veterans gain independent housing in the community. Through collaborations in the community and in partnership with various government agencies, the staff helps formerly homeless Veterans become successfully housed each year.
