Veterans

JFCS supports veterans and their families who reside on the Suncoast who are confronting life’s challenges. We offer case management and financial and employment assistance to low-income veterans and their families who are homeless or who are about to become homeless. This assistance enables them to obtain or maintain stable, permanent housing. We work with veterans in the Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, Lee, Desoto, and Collier counties.

If you are in need of services for a veteran, please contact our Veteran’s Intake Department

Veterans Assistance Includes

JFCS’s client-centric approach provides care for Veterans to maintain self-sufficiency and facilitates solutions to living a healthy lifestyle with a support system. Through the Operation Military Assistance Program (OMAP), Veterans are able to gain the assistance needed to obtain or maintain permanent housing, removing the barriers to living a stable, comfortable, and more satisfying life.
