ARVets Homelessness program provides homelessness prevention assistance to Veteran households that would otherwise become homeless, and provides rapid re-housing assistance to Veteran households who are currently homeless. We believe that in order to maintain housing stability the Veteran and their family must be assisted not only with housing needs, but in all areas that may provide barriers to remaining permanently housed.

Supportive Services for Veteran Families

The Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program is a homeless prevention program designed to assist Veteran families at risk of homelessness to maintain their housing and to rapidly re-house Veteran families who have recently become homeless in Pulaski, Faulkner, Lonoke, and Saline counties. The SSVF Program offers a range of short-term services that include case management and assistance in obtaining VA and other public benefits. A Housing Stability Plan is developed with each Veteran Family and may include the following services:

  • Housing counseling/housing search
  • Securing utilities
  • Mediation with property owners
  • Financial budgeting
  • Employment assistance
  • Linkage between participant and available services/benefits

Temporary financial assistance may be available to eligible Veterans who would be homeless but for SSVF financial assistance. These may include: rental assistance, utility payments, security payments, moving costs, childcare and transportation expenses. Please follow the link below to learn more about SSVF services.
