Veteran Services

Catholic Charities of Kansas City-St. Joseph’s Veteran Services team is the premier veteran service organization in the region.

Rapid Housing Solutions for

Homeless Veterans

We operate under a Housing First model – the belief that permanent housing is foundational, and once achieved, can help the person overcome life’s other obstacles such as unemployment, monetary or budgeting issues, substance abuse, or mental and physical health challenges.

The Housing First model often translates into rent and utility assistance, either short or long-term.

Last year, our Veteran Services team provided over $210,000 in rent and utility assistance.

This enables veterans struggling financially to remain housed. If a veteran does end up on the streets, then the Veteran Services team works to rapidly re-house them. Last year, 85% of veterans who participated in the Catholic Charities rapid rehousing program were successfully housed at the completion of the program and 93% were still in their home six months later!

Services include:

  • Housing case management
  • Emergency assistance
  • Employment services
  • One-on-one counseling
  • Social Security benefit assistance
  • Assistance with other resources/referrals
