Welcome Home Veterans Transitional Program is a seven-bed transitional house for homeless veterans in the Beaumont Community of Spartanburg. Upon entering the program, each Veteran is provided a bio-psycho-social assessment and the development of an Individual Self-Sufficiency Plan (ISSP). Based on their progress toward their ISSP Veterans can stay in the Program up to 24 months. Veterans are provided with food, shelter, clothing, crisis intervention, financial counseling, case management, job readiness training and transportation to job interviews and medical/behavioral health appointments. In addition, Veterans attend individual and group counseling to address PTSD, anger management and substance use disorders. Residents are also aided in applying for Veterans benefits. Through an "arms around " approach, we hope to transition our veterans to non-supported housing, restoration with family, and regain self esteem
