-- The Southeast Veterans Service Center and Chesapeake Veterans House of Washington DC operates an 98-bed Transitional Living Center in Southeast Washington DC for homeless male and female veterans of all wars and eras. These center offer residents a safe, clean and sober village-like setting for several months to a year, depending upon individual needs. The program, originally formulated as a social model, is now integrated with structured case management and mental health therapy and simultaneously addresses the addictions, mental health problems, medical needs, family issues, spiritual development and employment training and placement requirements of each resident.
This multi-service approach is divided into three phases: Recovery Services, Employment Development, and Community Reintegration. Abstinence, following a 12-Step model, is the essential; nurturing of individual strength and pride through community participation is the organizing principle; and full employment, independence and reintegration into the Washington DC community is the goal.
The event will be held at 10 am at the Access Housing Southeast Veterans Service Center and Chesapeake Veterans House, 820 Chesapeake Street SE (Corner of Southern Avenue and Chesapeake SE).
Please come and hear his rousing message for the veterans!
