For over 25 years, New Ground has been helping homeless Veterans Break the Cycle of Homelessness and Poverty, eventually obtaining permanent stable housing and future independence. Homeless Veterans placed in reduced cost housing were provided intensive social work and education services by New Ground to assist with achieving goals in areas of employment, financial literacy, education, career development, parenting, basic life skills, education advocacy, and more.
In December 2016, our services were expanded to serve an even greater number of Veteran households. Through collaboration with the Northport VA Center, New Ground began offering our various programs to over 400 homeless Veteran households in their VASH (Veteran Affairs Supportive Housing) Program. The Veterans and their families participating in the VASH Program have been certified homeless by the Northport VA, and under a “housing first” model, placed in housing units in Nassau and Suffolk Counties with landlords willing to work with VA requirements and accept the VASH housing subsidy. New Ground services are also being provided preemptively to some homeless Veteran households currently on the interest list for the VASH Program.
If you are a Long Island Veteran experiencing homelessness or you know someone in need, please contact us at 516-564-4764.
