Temporary Financial Assistance

Temporary Financial Assistance ( Homeless Veterans )

Provider: VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA - GREATER LOS ANGELES - HOLLYWOOD VETERANS CENTER

The agency provides housing services for homeless veterans, or veterans who are at imminent risk of losing their housing, and their household members in Los Angeles County. Services include personal financial counseling, rental deposit assistance, rent payment assistance, and undesignated temporary financial assistance. There are no geographic restrictions.

Services promote housing stability among very low-income veterans and veteran families through the Supportive Services For Veteran Families program (SSVF Program). The veteran family needs to be sustainable once the program support is terminated.

Personal financial counseling services include money management counseling.

Rental deposit assistance services are also available to homeless veterans and can include some move in costs, as well as first and last month rent. These funds are only available for individuals who are successfully participating in the housing retention program.

Rent payment assistance services are available to veterans who are at imminent risk of eviction. This is a short term service and can include up to two months rent. These funds are only available for individuals who are successfully participating in the housing retention program.

Temporary financial assistance services provide emergency funds and can be used for back owed utilities or deposits, or emergency supplies. The agency will give the financial assistance directly to a third party, not the veteran. These funds are only available for individuals who are successfully participating in the housing retention program. APPLICATION PROCEDURE Call to apply for services.
