Single Stop is partnering with the Robin Hood Foundation through its Veterans Initiative to bring our “one-stop,” comprehensive, peer-based service to help veterans and their families in New York City. Robin Hood’s Veterans Initiative is dedicated to lifting veterans out of poverty by helping them get all the support services they need, such as housing, health care and jobs. Our innovative, cost-effective approach will also use peers at select sites, veterans serving veterans. Through this initiative we will help veterans and their families access public benefits, veteran’s benefits, jobs, housing, mental health, education, and other social services at one location.
Open to all veterans, regardless of service era or discharge status, this program is especially critical for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. It can be difficult and time-consuming for veterans and their families to determine all of the various benefits that exist and to access the resources and programs that they need to thrive following their service. Our veteran’s services wtill include the entire household, spouse, the grandparent, the child, and other family members to ensure that the whole family receives the critical services they need to uplift from poverty. Single Stop is proud to partner with the VA to bring these services on-site at two VA hospitals and a clinic.
