Female Veterans Transitional Housing
The U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) reports that women Veterans have been, and continue to be, an under-served population. Since 1996, NECHV has aggressively developed and implemented new and focused programs of support to ensure that the emerging needs of women Veterans are met. The women Veterans transitional residence at the Center comprises 24 beds and is a safe living separate from any male Veteran housing that provides 24-hour controlled access and security.
Case management for the Women Veterans Support Program is sensitive to the unique needs of women in transition. NECHV provides dedicated case managers and addictions counselors who are experienced in the complexities of Military Sexual Trauma (MST), PTS and other concerns specifically related to women Veterans.
