“May this light be a ray of hope, leading our brother’s home”.


LZ II Transitional Residence: LZ II, an abbreviation of “Landing Zone II,” is a ninety-five bed transitional residence for homeless male Veterans operated by the Veterans Multi-Service Center on the grounds of the Coatesville VA Medical Center in Pennsylvania.  Known as “home” to over a thousand Veterans who have lived there since its opening in June of 1997, LZ II offers a safe, secure, and supportive environment in a structured program that fosters respect, recovery and responsibility while increasing independence as the Veteran transitions back into the community.  In our eighteen year history at LZ II we have had a 60% success rate with Veterans leaving the program with a job and enough savings for housing.  It should be noted that 14% of the occupants in LZ II are Veterans of the current war in Iraq and Afghanistan.  


LZ II Mission: To offer a safe environment where male Veterans can stay, living in harmony with others, while they endeavor to attain personal growth and enhance life skills, in order to re-establish themselves as members of a community and regain ownership of their lives.

"I am the wife of a Viet Nam Veteran. My husband started going to PVMSEC 10 years ago for help. No mere words could ever express how much his life and in turn our family life has changed for the better in those years. I am and always will be grateful for the wonderful care he has received at the Philadelphia Veterans Multi-Service Center & Education Center."
