The Mission of the New England Center for Homeless Veterans is to extend a helping hand to homeless men and women Veterans who are addressing the challenges of addiction, trauma, severe and persistent mental illness, and/or unemployment and who will commit themselves to sobriety, non-violence, and working for personal change. We are recognized as one of the most effective private Veteran's transition programs in the country.
The New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans, founded in 1990, offers a residential program with a three-tiered structure: Cot Squad, Transitional Housing and Single Room Occupancy. In addition, we offer supportive services such as Education and Employment, and Health Care and Financial/Legal Services to our Veterans. Our substance-free shelter is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, serving our men and women Veterans. Since inception, we have served over 12,000 veterans. We also provide three healthy meals daily and served more than 230,000 meals in FY2004.
