UVBH currently runs and supports 23
throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties in New York. All
locations are drug and alcohol free and properties are
either owned or leased with capital leases (to purchase)
by United Veterans Beacon House. In each of our
we run programs that align with needs of that resident
population. Our Senior Veteran population has very
different needs than our single non-veteran population.
We make sure that we match our residents with the
housing and program that will meet their needs and offer
them the necessary environment for their personal
success. We are always expanding and desire to provide
more housing and services to those in need.
Case Management ...
Each resident is assigned a Case
Manger. The Case Manager is responsible for assessment,
service-plan development as well as coordination and
implementation of all services. In addition the case
managers connect resident Veterans to the entitlements
they qualify for such as Social Security, Disability
and/or Service Connected Benefits.
Vocational Counseling ...
UVBH provides valuable training and
support in Resume Writing, Job Readiness Workshops, Job
Search and Interview Skills to both homeless Veterans
and those returning from active duty in our current
military efforts. Our goal is to assist this population
in securing sustainable employment, giving them the
opportunity to become independent and self sufficient.
We provide our residents with
transportation to and from all medical appointments,
emotional counseling visits and job training and
