Mission

The S. E. Mass. Veterans Housing Program, Inc. was established to provide hope for homeless veterans in a safe, sober, supportive residence and to assist those who desire to achieve rehabilitation, self-sufficiency, and community reintegration.‍‍‍

Upcoming Events

The Veteran's 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.
