Transitional Housing (Apartments)
For many veterans and military families, transitioning to civilian life presents many obstacles, including finding an affordable place to live and securing employment to support themselves and their families. To address these challenges, Operation Homefront is teaming with partners, like The Galman Group, to launch a new program that will assist in the successful transition of recently separated veterans. Operation Homefront’s Transitional Housing (Apartments) will provide veterans with a rent/utilities free apartment for one year, while giving them the opportunity to utilize both employment and financial counselor services to help achieve stability and chart a path to long-term post military success.
Honorably discharged veterans within 4 years of discharge.
