Veterans Programs

Community Hope is the largest nonprofit serving homeless veterans and families in and around New Jersey.

Our mission is: Helping individuals, including veterans, and their families, overcome mental illness, addiction, homelessness and poverty by providing housing and support services.

Through our Hope for Veterans® Programs, we have rescued over 2,000 veterans and their families from homelessness and despair.

We believe that those who honorably served our country and defended our freedom deserve a roof over their head and to live with dignity.

In our efforts to help end veteran homelessness, we provide a continuum of services that include:

  • Supportive Services for Veteran Families: Proactive services to help veterans and veteran families avert homelessness by providing rapid re-housing and homeless prevention services.

  • Transitional Housing: Where homeless veterans can reside for three to nine months with comprehensive support services aimed at helping them rebuild their lives, increase income, and graduate into permanent stable housing.

  • Permanent Supportive Housing: Valley Brook Village for Veterans consists of 62 units of newly-constructed housing to ensure that homeless veterans have a place to call home and the support they need. Plans for phase II of the development are underway. In partnership with Morris Habitat for Humanity, our Veterans Housing Rehabilitation will provide a home for 4 veterans. We are in the final stages of renovating the home in Chester, NJ.
