About the Program:

The Adirondack Vets House, Inc. is a 9-bed transitional housing program for homeless veterans. Althougth the length of stay varies to the needs of the veteran, the maximal amount of time is 2 years with an average stay of 12 to 14 months! We help direct each veteran to a variety of service providers to help our veterans back onto their feet. Although the Veterans Affairs is the  most common referral we make, there are host of agencies that offer specific services to help our veterans achieve their personal needs!

Each of our programs has been specifically tailored to meet the needs of our veterans. Their needs may vary from veteran to veteran so in order to help each veteran, we have networked with several community organizations that can assist us in providing the best quality of care for each veteran that walk through our doors. Our programs address specific needs to help each veteran reach their personal goal no matter what the objective is for that particular veteran. Our list is as follows:
