Common Ground is committed to housing homeless veterans, who are disproportionately represented among the homeless. According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, 26% of people living on our nation’s sidewalks and sleeping in our shelters served in the armed forces. On average, approximately 10% of individuals served by Common Ground are veterans.

To meet this pressing need, Common Ground, in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), opened a 96-unit Veterans Transitional Residence (VTR) on the Montrose, New York VA campus. The VTR, in coordination with the VA, offers comprehensive on-site case management, mental and physical health services, substance abuse counseling, and employment assistance to move individuals into permanent housing within a two-year period.
