Subsidized Permanent Housing Programs

 

VMC operates two subsidized permanent housing programs providing assistance to homeless Veterans who have the desire, the commitment, and the ability, both emotionally and financially to live independently in a community setting.

"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."
