Local Focus – JFCS Veterans

JFCS of the Suncoast Veterans Services supports veterans and their families who reside in Manatee, Sarasota, Desoto, Charlotte, Lee, and Collier counties.

We offer the following services: case management, peer mentoring, financial assistance, legal, benefits counseling, transportation assistance, moving expenses, and childcare assistance to very low income veterans and their families who are literally homeless or who are about to become homeless to enable them to obtain or maintain stable, permanent housing.

• Families in which head of household or their spouse is a veteran.

The period of active service must include service in active duty for purposes other than training.
