The Day-Drop provides homeless veterans who are in need of a facility that affords a degree of comfort during the day and a feeling of camaraderie with other veterans in similar circumstances. In the Day-Drop, veterans have access to shower facilities, clothing, water and vending machines, crisis intervention counseling and a quiet haven to rest. The Facility has a 50 person capacity.
The Emergency Housing component is actually the first phase for veterans committing to the MCVET program. The Emergency Housing program has a capacity of 50 beds and is available to residents for a period not to exceed thirteen (13) weeks. During the 13 weeks, residents' military status is confirmed and they receive VA benefits counseling. They are also assigned to a case manager who works with the resident to identify the causes of the homelessness and to outline employment and education goals.
The Transitional Housing Program has 120 beds and provides up to two years of transitional housing and supportive services to veterans who have successfully completed the Emergency Shelter Program and need continued supportive services in order to return them to employment and permanent housing.
Single Room Occupancy
The Single Room Occupancy (SRO) Program is a gateway leading towards permanent housing with essential component to the overall continuum of care. The SRO functions in conjunction with the existing Emergency Shelter and Transitional Housing Programs provides a full continuum of housing, counseling and job placement services to veterans in need. Veteran applicants from outside MCVET's program, including female veterans, are also eligible for the SRO units.
