    Homelessness Prevention

    VOA offers a continuum of housing programs and services: emergency shelters, supportive housing, housing for seniors, housing for veterans, rapid re-housing, rental assistance, and a residential reentry center. We believe the key to addressing homelessness is providing a continuum of support services (in addition to housing and food) to help people develop more stable, self-sufficient lives.
