Serving Those Who Served: Do You Know a Veteran Who Needs Housing?

Do you know a veteran who is homeless or at risk of becoming homeless?

There are thousands of veterans facing homelessness in America. In fact, 1 in 5 homeless individuals are veterans. Veterans experiencing homelessness is an ongoing challenge in the U.S.

Veterans returning from military service should never have to face homelessness or housing insecurity after the sacrifices they have made. Many veterans—especially those with low incomes—struggle to find affordable, stable housing with supportive services available.

From enrolling in health insurance to selecting a new career path, veterans returning from military service face a variety of unique challenges when transitioning back to civilian life. Unfortunately, many do not receive the support needed to navigate this difficult transition and find themselves in hard circumstances. In addition, veterans experiencing economic hardship, disabilities, or mental health issues face increased risks for homelessness.

How can affordable veteran housing with supportive services improve this transition?

Proper Housing

After the great sacrifices they have made, every veteran deserves a bed and a place to call home. That’s why MS Affordable Home provides group housing specifically for veterans. Disabled and non-disabled servicemen alike can share clean, newly-furnished bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms with all household supplies and food included. MS Affordable Home believes the last thing every veteran should have to worry about is having a place to have a meal and lay their head.

Supportive Services

One of the biggest things veterans struggle with when transitioning out of the military is finding affordable healthcare services. Supportive services are essential for returning veterans to recover from their combat experiences. Many veterans face depression, anxiety, PTSD, traumatic brain injuries, substance abuse, or physical disabilities upon their return from military service. Veterans with already low-incomes can often not find affordable healthcare services to support their recovery needs.

MS Affordable Home’s residential care homes are specifically designed to provide supportive services for each of its demographics. For veterans, these supportive services include but are not limited to: counseling, physical therapy, mental healthcare services, sober treatment facilities, and more.

Employment

Veterans returning from their military service need positive, supportive, and affordable living environments. Veterans recovering from PTSD, depression, anxiety, or addiction need continual care and strong support systems. These individuals especially need the time and space to heal and slowly re-adjust to everyday life. Affordable housing gives veterans the opportunity to slowly transition back into everyday living, including finding a job. Veterans can rest easy and look for work without the added pressure of keeping up with expensive housing.

Community

Veterans experience a very unique set of circumstances. Upon returning home, they may feel isolated and like no one truly understands what they went through. Group housing for veterans creates the opportunity for service members to connect and build long-lasting relationships with fellow military members.

In group homes, veterans are able to come out of isolation, build relationships and friendships, and establish a support system that helps them thrive. This safe space of like-minded peers provides individuals with people to lean on during a difficult process. An environment of communal encouragement and support is essential for returning veterans.

Every veteran deserves stability and a place to call home.

MS Affordable Home has residential care homes, group homes, and transitional living homes for both disabled and non-disabled veterans. We work directly with the Department of Veteran Affairs and all affiliations of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines to ensure that our servicemen are provided with quality, safe housing upon their return home.

Group homes with residential care provide special needs individuals with comfort, stability, active engagement, and support.

Provisions are provided to meet their physical, emotional, and mental health needs.

Increased Independence

Group homes for adults with disabilities are designed to provide personalized care that promotes independence. Depending on the individual’s unique needs or desires, adults with disabilities can be as independent as possible while living in a community. This enhanced independence helps boost self-esteem and confidence.

Social Setting

Social interaction and engagement is important for everyone’s mental and emotional well-being. Group homes present a social setting for residents to live and interact with people just like them and to build a community. The opportunity to build friendships, support one another, and feel a sense of belonging is invaluable.

Depending on their abilities, individuals have the opportunity to work with roommates to keep their space clean or perform household tasks. The chance to learn from others, to work together on common goals, or teach others their skills is incredibly fulfilling.

What is a Sober Living Home and How Can it Help You Thrive?

Addiction recovery doesn’t end after rehab.

Individuals recovering from substance abuse need positive, supportive, and affordable living environments even after completing in-patient rehabilitation programs. Recovering from a substance abuse addiction requires continual care and strong support systems. These individuals especially need the time and space to heal and slowly re-adjust to everyday life.

What is a Sober Living Home?

Sober living housing offers those battling and recovering from addiction a safe, drug-free space to heal and grow. The stable, affordable living environment gives individuals the time and space they need to focus on physical, mental, and emotional healing. They are able to re-establish themselves at a comfortable pace while they develop independence and personal responsibility.

The substance-free residence is designed to support independent, healthy living while also providing accessible care services. Sober group housing eases the transition back into everyday life, gives people the opportunity to learn and use new skills, and live with like-minded people seeking long-term sobriety.

Foster Independence and Build Structure

Structured sober living homes set these individuals up for success by encouraging independence. People living in the residence are able to find jobs, take classes, cook for themselves, complete communal chores, attend AA meetings, and receive counseling. Building a structured routine and fostering personal responsibility is essential in the recovery process. It also gives individuals the chance to put the skills they have learned in rehab into practice.

Stay Accountable

Sober living homes help recovering individuals stay accountable in their sobriety journey. When surrounded by other people who are committed to sobriety, it can help individuals feel more accountable for their own sobriety and increase their desire to stay on track. In addition, some sober living homes have rules in place, such as mandatory AA meetings, counseling, drug testing, and a commitment to work or school, in order to continue in the right direction.

A Safe Space with a Community of Like-Minded People

Substance addictions can be extremely isolating. In group sober living homes, those recovering from addiction are able to come out of isolation, build relationships and friendships, and establish a sober support system that helps them thrive. This safe space of like-minded peers provides individuals with people to lean on during a difficult process. An environment of communal encouragement and support is essential to sober living.

Next Steps

In addition to our other demographics, MS Affordable Homes also provides and operates sober homes for those with drug and alcohol-related addictions. We have many properties that are specifically designed and managed for those with drug or alcohol dependencies. These homes maintain a drug and alcohol-free environment and enforce mandatory AA classes as well as counseling.
