VVSD has served all veterans since 1981 and is dedicated to "Leave No One Behind." VVSD is the only program of its kind in the United States and is nationally recognized as the leader in serving homeless military veterans. Each year VVSD provides services to more than 2,000 military veterans.
VVSD assists homeless veterans who have substance abuse and/or mental health issues, including men and women who have recently returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. At the heart of VVSD's programs are five pillars of success: Prevention, Intervention, Rehabilitation, Aftercare and Employment services.
