Residential Services for Veterans
Opening its doors in November, 2005, the American GI Forum’s Residential Center for Veterans offers a mix of services including job counseling, employment services, chemical dependency counseling, daily meal service, and community reintegration programs. The American GI Forum does not believe in “warehousing” individuals, but instead, it tailors a plan of action for each veteran client to support their transformation with self-sufficiency as the ultimate objective.
All interested veterans should visit our center located at 519 North Medina Street for an eligibility assessment. This program is available to both men and women single adult veterans.
About the Center
The renovation of a former warehouse to create 80 transitional beds and 60 single room apartments (SRO’s) was a multi-million dollar challenge that was accomplished through the leadership of the American GI Forum and the invaluable financial support of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the USAA Foundation, and the City of San Antonio. The American GI Forum NVOP provided approximately one-third of the construction funding for the building of this facility.
