Veterans Assistance

Supportive Services for Veteran Families

The Yellow Ribbon Project

Turning Points is a leader in providing services for homeless veterans and their families in Manatee County. Through the SSVF grant award from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, we work with the Veterans Administration to provide housing, shelter and supportive services to these individuals and families who have sacrificed so much for our country.

The SSVF Program focuses on securing and maintaining housing for Veterans who are currently homeless or would be homeless without this assistance. It provides temporary financial assistance and services to help persons gain housing stability. The goal is for Veterans in the SSVF program to remain stably housed after this temporary assistance ends.
