Step Up provides its three pillars of support for veteran members through its Veterans Services program.
Step Up is committed to supporting veterans in their transition from military service to civilian life by helping those experiencing homelessness secure housing and by providing services aimed at self-sufficiency and wellness.
The Veterans Services program currently serves more than 400 veterans and helps veterans move from the streets, shelters, and transitional housing into permanent supportive housing. The program provides veterans with street outreach, engagement, help with benefits enrollment, and making appointments. Through this process, a trusted partnership develops. Once housed, the Veterans Services team then continues to provide supportive mental and physical health services and life skills programs for veterans in “scattered site” units and in each of its Step Up communities throughout Southern California, including those on-site on the West Los Angeles VA campus.
