U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA)

The U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs has released its annual report on the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, providing insight into the nearly 40,000 Veteran households and 65,000 people served through the program in FY2013.

Notably, the VA reports that 95% of Veteran families and 90% of single Veterans who used SSVF prevention services and exited to permanent housing did not use VA homeless services within a year after exiting the program. Households who used SSVF rapid re-housing services were slightly more likely to re-enter VA Homeless Programs, with 93% of families and 88% of single adult households avoiding a return to VA Homeless Programs. 

The report also includes a variety of information useful in understanding the reach and effectiveness of the SSVF program, including: demographic information about the households served through the SSVF program in FY2013; the types of services households received; geographic distribution; program costs per household; length of time in the program; and to what type of housing households exited.
