Placing Veterans on a Path to Long-Term Housing & Success
Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas supports military veterans who are homeless with supportive services and permanent housing at our Maple Court Veteran Housing Program. Working in collaboration with the Veteran Affairs (VA) Grant and per Diem Program (GPD) since 2009, this 24-apartment facility exposes veterans to opportunities of income stability as well as health and housing. While working on goals of increased self-sufficiency, veterans connect with the Durham VA Medical Center services, community resources and employment opportunities.
Our staff and volunteers seek to provide the best environment possible for veterans transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing. In addition, staff engages the residents in case management services to better connect veterans with community resources. While at Maple Court, veterans may take advantage of the W. Travis Porter Veterans Resource Center which has computers available for job and housing searches, a TV, books and a small conference room for phone calls or meetings. If a Veteran does not have what is needed for apartment living, then Maple Court works to supply necessary items until the veteran is able to provide for him or herself.
No referral is required to apply, but the completion of an application is needed prior to admission interviews with VA and Maple Court staff.
