I am an outreach specialist with working under the SSVF grant for Centerstone Mental Health out of Clarksville. I am currently looking for businesses, community resources and social programs who could help in the referral for homeless or imminently homeless Veterans in Hickman Co. and surrounding areas. Any and all help would be great. Being from Montgomery Co., I am finding it a bit difficult to locate these folks in your areas. If they are out there I know you will know where to find them. This grant may be able to help some of our heroes get back on their feet and lead normal lives.
Thank you!!

Are your services ONLY for the homeless vets? Wer don't have too many homeless in Hickman County at all, but we do have a lot of vets and their families who probably need help.

Yes, the grant I work under is just for literally homeless or those in imminent danager of becoming homeless(eviction notice needed). What you have said about not having too many homeless veterans in your area is not exaclty accurate. I agree that your county may have not have many obviously homeless Veterans, however homeless does not necessarily mean living on the street or under a bridge. I hear people I talk to alot say the same thing you have said. Sometimes even homeless Veterans don't really realize that they are homeless. Crashing on someone's couch or residing in transitional housing are both examples of homeless Veterans. Sometimes a Veteran may have income but not enough funds to pay for the deposits and first months rent. We can help there. The SSVF grant is looking for Veterans we can help get into permanent housing. Thank you for your response.

I am a veteran living in Clarksville TN, I am HOMELESS and applied and qualified with Centerstone's SSVF program back in June 2015 >> It's now the END of October 2015

Thousands of very low-income Veteran families around the nation, who are permanently housed or transitioning to permanent housing, will continue to have access to crucial services with the renewal of approximately $300 million in grants under the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program.

SSVF - Supportive Services for Veteran Families ) has again dropped the ball, calling me to inform me despite having and I quote from the VA ‪#‎NEWS ‬ announcement on September 14, 2015 : "The funding announced today will support SSVF services in FY 2016, which starts October 1, 2015, and ends September 30, 2016.

My #SSVF Case Manager, Suzie Primo called to say "They do NOT have access to FUNDING yet!
