The National Veterans Outreach Program (NVOP) provides services to veterans of all eras, as well as their families. There are no strict eligibility requirements to receive assistance from our organization. We aim to help any veteran or veteran’s family member who needs support, whether it’s housing, employment, counseling, or other services.
Our philosophy is that anyone who has served this country in the armed forces has earned the right to get help from NVOP if they need it. Specific programs and services may have some eligibility criteria, such as being below a certain income threshold for our transitional housing program. But generally we strive to make our offerings available to the widest range of veterans possible.
The first step is to contact NVOP to explain your situation and needs. Our team will discuss your background, challenges, and goals in order to determine which services are the best fit to help you achieve stability, self-sufficiency, and success. We walk alongside veterans and families through every phase of the process.
