Presbyterian Night Shelter - Veterans' Voice

The Presbyterian Night Shelter Veteran's Voice Program provides short-term financial assistance for a cause that arose unexpectedly, there is an immediate need for financial assistance, and the need for assistance was not the result of the client's own misconduct. The Veteran's Voice Program is not a pension, income supplement, or an automatic entitlement program.

The Presbyterian Night Shelter Veteran's Voice Program will provide financial assistance for the following:

  • Rental/Mortgage Assistance:  Payments made directly to the landlord or mortgage co. with current lease/mortgage in client's name with 1 year rental history or the Client is transitioning from homelessness
  • Utility Assistance: Payments made directly to the vendor and the utility must in the client's name with one-year service history or the Client is transitioning from homelessness
  • Transportation Assistance: Determined on a case-by-case basis
  • Employment Considerations: Documentation of sudden unexpected unemployment with documentation of all other resources exhausted and assistance provided by local government and nonprofit organizations
  • Medical Expenses: Determined on a case-by-case basis
  • Home Repairs: Repairs necessary for normal household living (ex: plumbing, electric, stove or refrigerator repair), documentation of client ownership and occupancy of the home and a written statement from the repair company stating the nature of the repair
