Walter Reed Press Release.
HELP USA assists veterans across the nation, currently operating veteran specific, permanent, supportive-service housing in New York, Philadelphia, Newark, and Las Vegas . Additionally, HELP recently opened a state of the art veteran specific facility in Philadelphia, PA and broke ground in Newark, NJ and Brooklyn, NY on the construction of environmentally friendly, eco-efficient veterans sites. HELP is working to develop additional veteran residences in Maryland and Washington.
There are veterans in all HELP residences, with a majority presently located in Las Vegas, where HELP recently opened another new veteran specific site. Over the past 10 years, HELP USA Las Vegas has developed four residential properties resulting in a total of 320 units. These HELP properties provide affordable housing and support service programs for homeless individuals, veterans and their families.
The HELP USA Las Vegas veterans housing model provides a full continuum of housing and supportive services for residents and gives them a sense of independence as they work through barriers to self-sufficiency. Residents live among a community of their peers and can work towards self-sufficiency with the support of others who can relate to the obstacles they face. Through strong collaborative community partnerships with the VA, local hospitals and community-based providers, HELP USA is able to provide homeless veterans with priority access to a broad spectrum of critical services and resources
One of HELP’s newest residences, HELP Philadelphia Homes/ Robert G. Brady Veterans Center, will aim to meet the housing needs of female veterans and their families. The site will also provide supportive services to meet the needs of disabled veterans. The HELP Philadelphia Homes/Robert G. Brady Veterans Center is HELP USA's third project in Philadelphia with 63 affordable rental units that will add to the housing and services that HELP has already provided to homeless and low income families throughout Philadelphia.
