Since September of 2013, CalVet has collaborated with the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System (GLA) to operate an 84-bed Transitional Housing Program (THP) as part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) stated goal to end Veteran homelessness by 2015. The program is located within the Veterans Home of California -- West Los Angeles 396-bed facility, adjacent to the VA GLA West Los Angeles campus.
The THP aims at providing supportive services for Veterans who have been chronically homeless or living in unstable housing in order to help prepare those Veterans for maintaining a stable living arrangement.
Amenities for the THP include: Room and board; three meals plus snacks; medical care and medications; limited transportation services to medical appointments and activities; limited banking services; resident activity programs; and housekeeping services.
In order to be eligible, veterans must complete the VA Domiciliary treatment program. For more information, please call CalVet at (424) 832-8219 or (916) 503-8094, or the VA at (310) 478-3711 Ext. 43105
