Transitional Housing

VA New Jersey Healthcare Campus

Our Hope for Veterans Transitional Housing Program, located at the VA New Jersey Healthcare Campus in Lyons NJ, has helped more than 1,000 veterans overcome homelessness and despair since 2004.

Our transitional housing programs provide a safe place for veterans to address the issues that led to their homelessness

Our Hope for Veterans® Transitional Housing is a 95-bed transitional housing program for homeless veterans located on the Lyons VA campus.   We also operate an 8-bed program in Bergen County.

Opened in 2004 as the largest and most comprehensive program for homeless veterans in New Jersey, Hope for Veterans has received national acclaim for succeeding in helping more than 1,000 veterans who had fallen upon hard times. This program is open to both veterans in need of mental health clinical services and/or veterans needing a temporary place to reside until they can access apartments they have secured.

During their tenure in the program, veterans are encouraged to achieve sustained independence and financial self-sufficiency by working towards goals created by each of them.

Community Hope provides the following intensive services:

  • Individual and group mental health therapy and counseling.
  • Transitional housing for three to nine months that typically ends in graduation to permanent housing
  • Recovery services for individuals experiencing substance use and mental illnesses including depression, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, and other conditions

  • Access to employment opportunities, educational resources, career support services, and an on-site computer lab
  • Individual and group counseling with clinicians and peer led support groups
