Siena Francis House staff go to great lengths to ensure that the homeless veterans who seek overnight shelter here know that their military service to our country is truly appreciated.
Below are just some of the many ways the Siena Francis House serves veterans of our armed forces:
Siena Francis House staff members identify homeless men and women veterans staying in our shelter, and work with representatives of the Veterans Affairs to ensure that these homeless veterans receive all of the VA services due to them;
We also work with many other local organizations that specialize in head trauma, post traumatic stress disorder and mental health issues to ensure that homeless veterans who suffer from these illnesses receive the treatment and therapies they need;
Homeless veterans are prioritized on the waiting list of our residential “Miracles” Addiction Treatment & Recovery Program…and are moved into that program as quickly as possible;
Veterans in our Miracles Program receive vocational service training, while they are here at Siena Francis House. Our staff also helps veterans secure employment, as they prepare for graduation from this program.
