Successfully changing the life of an area veteran through The Transition House’s Supportive Services for Veteran Families program has gotten the attention of the U.S. Veterans Administration.
It was Yvette DeJesus, supervisor of the program at The Transition House, who helped an Army veteran who had become homeless after being released from prison.
The work of Yvette was recognized in a blog published in VAntage Point, the official blog of the U.S. Veterans Administration.
Working with the Supportive Services for Veteran Families and Supplemental Security Income/Social Security Disability Insurance Outreach, Access and Recovery, Yvette was able to help this veteran secure a home and help him put his life on a better path.
Through the programs at The Transition House, the veteran said his life has changed for the better.
Partnerships between The Transition House and the U.S. Veterans Administration are making a real difference in veterans’ lives and help end homelessness for veterans in Central Florida.
Programs like those in place at The Transition House “positively impacts access for all persons experiencing homelessness, including veterans,” according to Jamie Gunning, grants assistant manager at Homeless Services Network of Central Florida.
Launched 22 years ago as a halfway house, The Transition House provides behavioral health services including programs for veterans.
