Kinard Manor of Lutheran Family

We are a ten bed transitional housing facility for male veterans. No direct intakes allowed. All veterans are placed with us through the VA under the Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) program. Contact us or any VA hospital or clinic for more information about the program. All support for the veteran is free until they find employment. More Information: Lutheran Family Services in the Carolinas operates Kinard Manor in partnership with the Department of Veteran Affairs. Kinard Manor opened its doors in November 2007. Since that time we've served 38 veterans and have had 11 program graduates. Our program provides shelter, food, life skills training, and job hunting, all geared towards reintegrating the veteran back into the community. Veterans are placed in Kinard Manor by the VA. We are not allowed to do a direct (walk-in)intake, although we can provide transportation to the VA hospital for the purpose of getting enrolled in the VA's Health Care for Homeless Veteran program. The VA has program requirements: The veteran must be homeless. Also, the veteran must be documented as having (or have had) an addiction problem or mental problem. Once in the program, all medical needs for the veteran are handled by the VA. Although the average stay at Kinard Manor has been six months, the HCHV program does allow exceptions for up to two years.
