The Salvation Army has launched a new program to help homeless veterans in Kansas.
The Supportive Services for Veteran Families program will assist low-income veterans and their families in obtaining housing in Kansas. To qualify, vets must fall below 50 percent of the area median income where they live and be homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
The program also will provide support services, including case management, life skills training, support groups and financial and transportation assistance. Peer mentoring also will be available.
This program, which is currently accepting clients, is funded through a grant provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
