Oct. 16 - VSCOA Stand Down For Homeless Vets

Posted: Updated:

GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - Join the Veterans Support Centers of America in Stand Down For Homless Veterans on October 18th through the 20th at The American Legion In Salisbury. The event kicks off at 9:00 AM on Oct. 18 and ends at 2:00 PM on Oct. 20.

Veterans Support Centers of America or VSCOA is a nonprofit organization formed to serve our rural disabled and homeless Veteran community. We do this by providing opportunity, shelter, needed support and access to services. Our extensive network of service providers, knowledge of the Veterans Administration system and professional staff have come together to form a unique and successful program of services to support the needs of the rural veteran.

History:
VSCOA is an outgrowth of an emergency shelter program called Forbes Hall. The Forbes Hall Emergency Shelter program was launched in the fall of 2010 under the original nonprofit called the National Addiction Therapy Research Association or NATRA Inc.

The 10 bed program was under contract to the VA and served as the beta program for the now VSCOA transitional residence program. It was here that much was learned and what was learned was documented.

Two years after its launch Forbes Hall had earned a reputation of having one of the most successful shelter programs in its respective VA's five state Veterans Integrated Service Network or VISN. It was this success that also demanded it expand and incorporate needed elements that were beyond the mission and scope of the original nonprofit NATRA.
