A Green Country VA Medical center is working with a non-profit group to provide more housing for homeless veterans.

The Jack C. Montgomery VA Medical Center is partnering with Restoring Lives to open Liberty House, a new transitional living facility for homeless veterans. The facility will house veterans coming out of the prison system or veterans in recovery from alcohol and drug use who have a desire for recovery.

Liberty House is made possible by the VA Grant and Per Diem Program. Veterans can reside at the facility up to two years and will learn skills necessary to be self-sufficient during their stay to help promote a smooth transition back into permanent housing.

Liberty House is a highly-structured and individualized program that includes meals, safe housing, substance abuse and trauma treatment, case management, nutrition, job training and financial planning. The JCMVAMC Homeless Program will also work closely with Liberty House and provide case management services for homeless Veterans.

Restoring Lives is pleased to be a part of the VA’s five-year plan to end homelessness among American Veterans. For more information, please contact 918-445-2920.

This will NOT BE housing; it'll be a PRISON-LIKE & ALL-CONTROLLING mandatory 12-Step religious AA/NA & "Jesus Saves" insane asylum. The veterans will be driven to INSANITY and then released back to the streets more desperate than ever before...
