New Grant (SSVF) Assistance to Veterans

Hello Community Supporter,

My name is Karen Lewis, I am the Community Outreach Coordinator for the new Department of Veterans Affairs Supportive Services for Veterans Families(SSVF)program grant administered by the Las Vegas Urban League.

The Urban League is one of two non-profit agencies in the state of Nevada that are recently in receipt of the new SSVF program grant funds to provide services such as Outreach, Case Management, VA benefits referrals; limited/temporary rental & utility assistance, security deposits, transportation, moving cost, emergency supplies, child care, etc to eligible Veterans and their families to help prevent homelessness and promote housing stability among homeless, very low-income and at-risk Veterans and their families.

In addition to educating myself about your program, I would like to provide your organization with general information and brochures with regards to this new program. Please let me know what date and time would be best for you and your organization.

Also, if you know of a Veteran in need of assistance, please provide our contact information -
930 W.Owens Ave, 702-636-3949.
