Hawley Veterans Services Center is a transitional housing program for homeless veterans with mental health diagnoses. This transitional housing program extends 20 beds to single male veterans who are homeless and are moving toward permanent housing. Veterans can reside in the program for approximately 90 days as they wait for their permanent housing opportunities to become available. Veterans receive intensive support to help them find housing. In collaboration with other VA services and agencies clients can also work towards increasing life skills and income for their successful transition to self-reliance, while in our program. Additionally, housing staff work closely with Veterans to help them secure affordable housing in San Diego. As is the case with all our programs, Veterans are offered ongoing support after the move to permanent housing.
VOA Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) offers job readiness and job placement services to homeless Veterans. Our job placement staff work with veterans to complete pre-employment tasks, such as, resume writing, developing interview skills and securing professional clothing.
HVRP staff work with employers in the community to create job opportunities for homeless Veterans. HVRP staff offers ongoing emotional support to the Veterans who procure employment.
These programs are funded in partnership with the U.S. Department of Veteran's Affairs and other public and private sources.
