Veterans Services

We believe that Veterans and their families deserve a coordinated effort to feel secure and stable.

Our services help Veterans and their families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. MHALA's services focus on housing stability and sustainability, including employment training and placement, to prevent and reduce homelessness and to promote stable living.

We help find secure housing, essential physical care, mental health counseling, employment, and empowerment. We also offer benefits assistance and personal financial planning, as well as temporary financial assistance to help Veterans get back on their feet.

Each individual creates a plan that specifically identifies goals and steps that will benefit their household in being successful in housing.

Our team can help you determine if you are eligible for our services.
