Support Homeless Veterans Supported Shared Housing
Veteran Recovery Homes in Philadelphia
Support Homeless Veterans, Inc. has 8 family oriented veteran group homes in the Philadelphia community. The homes are devoted to
1. Not over crowding
2. Being placed in desirable areas
3. They are homes that our team would live in themselves. SHV can house 28 veterans among these homes.
The concept is peer support family oriented model that allows the veterans to feel at home and with family. This permanent housing concept has been in operation since September 2012 and has since proved a 85% retention rate longer than 6 months and 70% longer than 18 months. Our relapse rate is 15% and our inpatient psych rate is only 2%. This means that our veterans stay with us longer and remain clean, sober, and sane. Other organizations do not even advertise these rates. The reality is that homeless veterans are a difficult population to serve and you can not win them all, but this independent support model is proven to bring a permanent solution to the chronic problem of homelessness among our veterans.
