The Veterans Transition House (VTH) helps homeless and at-risk veterans and
their families in the Massachusetts South Coast area. We provide shelter and
services, with a special focus on healing from substance abuse and learning new
life skills. The VTH is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit , founded in 1990 by a group
of Vietnam veterans and community leaders who recognized the vital need for
housing and supportive services for area homeless and at-risk
veterans—especially those tackling substance abuse—on the Massachusetts South
Coast. Our goal is the rehabilitation, self-sufficiency and reintegration of
each veteran into the community. It's our belief that the veterans we serve
seek a hand up, not a hand-out.
VTH also offers in-house computer training and partners with a veteran-specific
job placement program. It is the only organization of its kind in the area.Our
Board of Directors meets monthly. VTH receives and manages federal funding from
the US Departments of HUD and the VA, and is proud to receive "clean"
independent audits yearly. Since its inception, over time, VTH has provided
over 2,500 formerly-homeless veterans with housing and specialized supportive
Last year, VTH we provided much-needed housing and services to 96
male veterans in need. Our dedicated staff of 23, which includes case workers
and addictions counselors, stay connected to the community through memberships
in area task forces and committees. We partner with numerous city and state
service providers to provide optimum resources for our veterans.
