Vietnam Veterans, one residence was opened in 1994. UVBH
is proud to say we now operate and support 25 locations
throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties (24 for housing
and 1 for our headquarters) and provide services to over
195 men, women and children on any given day. Primarily, UVBH was formed to work with the homeless veteran
population of the Tri State area and continues to do so;
we work with veterans who come to us with physical
disabilities, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic
Brain Injury, mental health issues and/or alcohol
addiction. Many years ago we expanded our efforts to
include assisting the non-veteran population and the
issues they face, including homelessness, drug and/or
alcohol addiction and job skill/readiness development.
UVBH places each person or family that comes to us in
the home and program that best supports their needs.
Along with a safe and structured living environment we
provide our residents with a host of supportive
services, including Case Management, transportation for
medical visits and appointments, education and job
placement programs and services as well as coordination
of all mental and emotional counseling. We also connect
our residents with entitlements.
