  • Washington D.C. Grand Opening

    On October 24, 2014 in our nation’s capital, U.S.VETS cut the ribbon on our newest residential facility, located at 150 Wayne Place in Southeast D.C. The grand opening ceremony of the new site was attended by over a hundred community partners, including local dignitaries and veteran stakeholders. Stephen Peck, President & CEO of U.S.VETS, along with COO Darryl Vincent, and Washington D.C. Executive Director Clifton Lewis, made remarks regarding the importance of opening a facility like this in the District. Over the last year and a half, the site went through major construction to provide a new facility for 85 homeless male and female veterans.  While living at the site, veterans will receive round-the-clock residential assistance, case management, employment assistance and training, while their basic needs are met in order to help them regain independence and prepare for permanent housing.  In addition to housing units, a Career Center, dining hall, and kitchen were also built to provide needed services to veterans within their new home. After the ribbon-cutting ceremony, guests enjoyed a reception in the facility’s dining hall.  U.S.VETS staff then provided guided tours for community partners to see the facility for the first time. Veterans will begin moving in to the new site around Veterans Day. U.S.VETS is grateful for the support of major partners who made this project a reality:  the Veterans Administration, MED Developers, and The Home Depot.

  • New Services for Washington D.C. Veteran Families

    In October 2013, through a grant from the Department of Veterans Affairs, U.S.VETS – Washington D.C. launched its Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program which focuses on ending and preventing homelessness. The program is designed to rapidly re-house homeless veterans and their families, or to assist them in maintaining their permanent housing. Case management and supportive services are offered to veterans living in the community. Some emergency funding (rental assistance, utility assistance, moving expenses, etc.) can also be provided to participants to help them in a housing stability plan. The program will serve veteran households throughout the District of Columbia, as well as select counties of Maryland and Virginia. Our D.C. team has expanded by the addition of 10 staff members to operate the SSVF program. With the launch of this new program for veteran families, our organization opened a new office in the heart of Downtown D.C. The new office is located at 1 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Suite #310 in the National Guard Memorial Building – just a block away from Union Station and minutes from the U.S. Capitol Building. An Open House Reception of the new location will take place on Thursday, December 12, 2013 from 11 am – 2 pm. RSVP by December 10 to dcinfo@usvetsinc.org
