The National Veterans Outreach Program (NVOP) has diversified its service components over the last 35 years to meet the priority needs of the community. In 1997, the NVOP built its first of three apartment complexes designed specifically to provide affordable housing for low-income elderly. Teaming with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the NVOP presently provides 170 apartments for the elderly.

All projects are operated on a non-profit basis, and each apartment is eligible for housing assistance vouchers provided by HUD, making the apartments very affordable for eligible elderly residents. Support services include meals on wheels, food bank assistance, visiting nurses, seasonal social events, and many other amenities that provide a safe and comfortable setting for the independent-living residents.

Residents must be elderly, fixed low-income recipients, and must be able to live independently. Currently, all three properties have a waiting list for apartments.

Elderly veterans and their families.

Working with the homeless is one of the most challenging forms of social service an organization can undertake. Typically, the homeless have immediate needs for "stabilization", followed by an extended period of case managed services to ameliorate the many profound issues common to this population.

The American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program (NVOP) stepped forward and accepted the challenge on behalf of homeless veterans. The renovation of a former warehouse to create 80 transitional beds and 60 single room apartments (SRO's) was a multi-million dollar "challenge" that was accomplished through the leadership of the NVOP, and the invaluable financial support of the U.S. Department of HUD, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the USAA Foundation, and the City of San Antonio. The American GI Forum NVOP also provided approximately one-third of the construction funding of the facility.

The American GI Forum Residential Center for (Homeless) Veterans has become a recognized national model in serving veterans and other homeless.

Must be homeless and a veteran.

Thrive houses 20 young adults in their own apartments with rental assistance for up to one year. This program is open to any young adults ages 18 to 24 who are experiencing homelessness in San Antonio, though clients must come to us through a system called "Coordinated Entry." We received the grant in 2018 and housed another 20 young adults, and will be able to start housing another 20 in October of this year. Our apartment clients receive all of the same services as our shelter clients, but the services are wrapped around them in their own housing.

Youth ages 18-24.

HFCC is committed to ending chronic homelessness for 200 seniors in San Antonio.

We'll do that by creating a safe, secure, beautiful, and welcoming campus featuring 200+ affordable Permanent Supportive Housing units in a caring community environment where residents can thrive.

Community buildings will provide a wide variety of clinical, professional, hospitality, recreational, and faith-based services for residents, neighbors, and guests who are not yet housed.

Volunteers living on-site in solidarity will provide companionship and around-the-clock support to residents. "Peer" volunteers bring especially valuable support due to their lived experience of homelessness.

We will serve members of our community who are most vulnerable due to:

  • Age (over 50 years)
  • Time Spent Unhoused
  • Disabilities
  • Chronic medical illnesses and mental health challenges
  • Orthopedic and mobility disabilities
  • High users of expensive public services (ER, EMS, in-patient medical or psychiatric care, justice system, etc.)
  • Additional risk factors

Permanent Supportive Housing assists and empowers families to live as independently as possible. SAMMinistries has a permanent housing program that assists families with whom one member of the family has a disability. SAMMinistries also manages 100 set-aside housing vouchers to help families find permanent housing in the private rental market.

Case managers work with adult participants to achieve the following goals:

  • Remain in (or exit to) permanent housing
  • Increase skills and/or income
  • Achieve greater self-determination
  • Achieve financial stability (reduce debt)

The individual or family:

  • must be "literally homeless" by HUD definition (living in an emergency shelter, on the street, or in a place not meant for habitation).
  • in some cases must be "chronically homeless" by HUD definition (a single person or head of household with a disabling condition who has either experienced homelessness for longer than a year, during which time the individual may have lived in a shelter, Safe Haven, or a place not meant for human habitation; or experienced homelessness four or more times in the last three years).
  • must be referred by the community's Coordinated Entry system. Call (210) 207-1799 to get that started.

For some projects, client pays 30% of their income toward rent, however, no income is required.

These are just three examples of the hundreds of military families who have been supported through Operation Homefront's housing programs. We offer four distinct programs to assist military families at every stage of their transition into civilian life.

It can be confusing to find help for older adults and people with disabilities. Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) are part of the No Wrong Door system, which is designed to streamline public access to long-term services and supports (LTSS).

ADRCs serve as a key point of access to person-centered LTSS specialized information, referral and assistance and provide one-stop access to information for people who need help finding LTSS.

ADRCs help cut through the confusing maze of funding sources, multiple intake systems, and eligibility processes.
