What we aim to solve New!

Many of our Veteran clients fall within the parameters of low-income, previously incarcerated, homeless or on the brink of homelessness, and may endure certain substance abuse and mental health issues. The Veterans Multi-Service Center is the only non-profit organization in the Philadelphia region offering comprehensive services to eliminate those barriers and help Veterans assimilate back into society, sustain housing, and earn a livable wage.

The Veterans Multi-Service Center has developed the following goals: (1) Continue commitment to sustaining formerly homeless older veterans in housing; (2) Expand services for the growing population of women veterans; (3) Increase focus on younger veterans to prevent homelessness; (4) Introduce comprehensive intake assessment and metrics that track client progress; and (5) Add mental and behavioral health support services.

(1) Continue commitment to sustaining formerly homeless older veterans in housing: Continue to provide supportive and subsidized housing to the veteran population in Philadelphia, while exploring options to expand regionally. (2) Expand services for the growing population of women veterans: Develop a plan to expand services to women veteran no later than March, 2018. (3) Increase focus on younger veterans to prevent homelessness: Develop a plan to attract and serve newly discharged Veterans with no or low barriers and assist them with transition no later than June, 2018. (4) Introduce comprehensive intake assessment and metrics that track client progress: Develop and deploy a new set of metrics to track support to Veterans no later than October, 2018. (5) Add mental and behavioral health support services: Partner with community-based health and human service providers to expand services for veterans and their families.

On January 25, 2017, the VMC Board of Directors began the process of developing a long term strategic plan to benefit the future of VMC and further assist Veterans. The Board established a Strategic Planning Committee to propose a vision for VMC's future, built around key Strategic Questions and developed priorities, outcomes desired, goals, objectives and tactics. The Strategic Plan was voted upon and adopted by the Board at its meeting on September 27, 2017. Each of VMC's goals has a timeline and progress is reported to the Strategic Planning Committee and Board of Directors at each meeting. VMC's staff, Board of Directors, as well as the planning committee are committed to accomplish our goals within our desired timeframes.

The Veterans Multi-Service has developed a progress tracking system with due dates and the individual responsible for completing the specific task is listed. Progress is monitored on an ongoing basis and also reported to the Strategic Planning Committee and Board of Directors at each meeting.

The Veterans Multi-Service Center continues to provide supportive and subsidized housing to the veteran population in Philadelphia. Currently we are working on ways to expand our Women Veteran programs, increase focus on young Veterans to prevent homelessness, Introduce comprehensive intake assessment and metrics that track client progress, and we are looking to partner with community-based health and human service providers to add mental and behavioral health support services.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
