The Veterans Transition Center (VTC) has provided Transitional Housing since 1998. The program is designed to place an emphasis on Veteran accountability through a strong partnership between a client and their Case Manager. Veterans enrolled in VTC programs work to establish short-term goals that accumulate to reach larger program goals.
Case Managers evaluate the benefits a Veteran is receiving when they enter into a VTC program and make sure that all earned benefits are being collected. If there is a deficiency, the Veteran and Case Manager work together for the Veteran to start receiving all unpaid earned benefits.
VTC Case Managers provide formerly homeless Veterans the tools necessary to achieve successful independence in society. With long-standing relationships with local social services providers, VTC is able to walk each client through the process of securing permanent housing through the HUD-VASH office and referrals to SSVF. Clients also work with their Case Managers to address any employment barriers and have the opportunity to improve their marketable job skills at VTC’s Job Development and Education Center (JDEC), work one-on-one on their resume and job interview skills and take advantage of VTC partnerships with multiple employment agencies.
VTC’s client driven program has reached incredible levels of success in past years and we plan to continue down that path. The VTC has always strived to exceed the VA’s purposed matrix. Based upon a 19-year record of success, VTC is confident that they will meet the VA’s Service Intensive Model Required Minimum Performance Metrics/Targets. However, VTC goals are to exceed those targets as follows: Service-Intensive Transitional Housing Planned Performance Matrix: Discharge to permanent housing 75 percent; employment of individuals at discharge 60 percent; and negative exits will be less than 20 percent.
