WHAT IS SSVF?

SUPPORTIVE SERVICES FOR VETERAN FAMILIES (SSVF)

A range of supportive services are available for low-income Veterans and their families who are currently without permanent housing or at imminent risk of losing permanent housing. To promote housing stability among this population, we assist eligible Veterans through outreach, case management, and wrap-around service support.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

Discharge: All discharges EXCEPT DISHONORABLE from active duty in the USA Military.

Housing Status: Veterans who are either currently homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless*.

Income: Low to very-low income veteran families earning less than 50% of area median indomce (AMI).

Service Area: PICB is only able to assist Veterans in the Cook County area. Any Veterans who are outside of this area will be referred to another SSVF grantee.

*ALL PREVENTION CASES NEED TO MEET OUR THRESHOLD SCREENING. A CASE MANAGER WILL FURTHER EXPLAIN THIS PROCESS.
