Village of Valor Veterans Services

Veterans Services

Veterans’ services will be available to the residents of the Village, as well as to all veterans in the Palm Beach County area.  The main community building will include a library/computer lab, a resource services center, a Religious Reflection Room and office space for visiting service providers (medical, financial, counseling, etc.). As vocational training is an important element of the service program, a classroom of traditional layout with modern technology is included.

Office space for the staff of Faith*Hope*Love*Charity, Inc. will be located at the community, so that caseworker’s and service staff will be available onsite.  There will be separate office space for the rental housing management staff of a third party management agent with substantial experience in LIHTC multi-family housing.  An onsite daycare center is also planned to ensure that family care does not become a barrier to success.

Forward March Program

Services to assist veterans into the labor force

The Forward March program provides services to assist homeless and at risk veterans in reintegrating into meaningful employment within the labor force, and stimulates the development of effective service delivery systems that address the complex problems facing our veterans.

The following services are offered to meet veteran’s needs:

• On-the-job-training programs                      • Referrals
• Job Skills Development Workshops             • Outreach
• Placement follow-up services

Case Management

Supportive Services for Veterans Families

Residents at Village of Valor are teamed up with a case manager through the Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program (SSVF). Case managers help veterans navigate through available public benefits and services to help them resolve a housing crisis and regain stability in permanent housing. The Program can also provide financial assistance for expenses such as rent, utilities, moving costs and child care.

Nutritional Services

Promoting a healthier tomorrow

A very unique characteristic of this community is the inclusion of a Nutrition Services division, which will maintain an onsite Coffee Shop along with a larger dining hall / community room space and a commercial kitchen. The Coffee Shop would be open daily and provide beverages and lighter fare, such as sandwiches, fruit and desserts. The dining hall will be able to seat up to 100 and will make use of the commercial kitchen for a ‘meals on wheels’ type program to help ensure that veterans throughout the county are able to have one hot meal daily. These programs will operate on a regular basis to encourage better nutrition for those in need.

Child Care

Supportive Services for Veterans Families

Being able to provide our veterans with a complete support system also means helping the whole family. Village of Valor will have childcare assistance and referrals will be provided to give families peace of mind to focus on developing their future. The program can also provide financial assistance for child care expenses.
