Meet Mr. Ayers, an honorably discharged Navy Veteran who was chronically homeless when we met him just weeks ago…Today, we are proud to share he has a home of his own! (complete with a free bed, furniture from the VMC Thrift Store, and a “Welcome Basket” of essential household items!)
Now, that he is housed, Mr. Ayers aims to find employment in the food service industry, increase his income, and stabilize his housing!
Together, we are getting #ReadyForZero.
This was another collaborative effort to END Veteran Homelessness between SSVF and The RRH Bridge Program: The Rapid Rehousing (RRH) Bridge Program partners with Housing and Urban Development – Veteran Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) and Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) to “bridge” chronically homeless veterans and their families into housing, while they wait for their PHA lease signing.
