"VETERANS HELPING VETERANS"
The Veterans Transitional Facility (Fee Avenue in Melbourne) is a temporary shelter for homeless veterans with their immediate families. The purpose of the Facility is to provide for the immediate needs of homeless veterans while permitting them to search for work, and once employed, to save enough money to acquire living quarters and transportation The Facility consists of ten apartments housed in two buildings which can accommodate up to nineteen residents. In addition to the living areas there is a dayroom, a commercial kitchen for preparing meals, and a storeroom for storing food and other supplies.

The Requirements for admission into the Facility Are:
* Be a Veteran or the immediate family with a Veteran and be able to prove it.
* Be indigent or be able to demonstrate a valid need for assistance.
* Be Drug and Alcohol free.
* Be able to care for one's own personal needs.

"Operations"
The Facility is staffed by a Director/Case Manager, Resident Facility Manager, and a part-time cook to prepare meals for the residents. These personnel are supervised by the Veterans Assistance Program Committee of the Vietnam and All Veterans of Brevard, Inc.

Residents are provided with all personal items including clothing, if that is necessary. During their stay at the facility they are required to search for work and to obtain employment within a reasonable length of time. They are also required to assist in maintaining the Facility. Apartments are inspected regularly to insure that residents maintain a reasonable living standard. The Facility maintains contact with Florida Job Link and local businesses in an effort to assist residents in finding employment. Residents with substance abuse problems are required to participate in AA meetings and also in counseling sessions provided by a Veterans Administration counselor. Residents who need other social services are referred to the proper agency within the county. Residents needing health treatment are transported to the Brevard Veterans Administration Outpatient Clinic at Viera or to the Orlando Veterans Administration Clinic. Residents who must apply to the Veterans Administration for disabilities or pensions are referred to the Brevard County Veteran's Service Office or to one of the many veterans’ organizations who maintain service officers within their organizations. "Residents live at the Facility in a controlled environment".

The Vietnam and All Veterans of Brevard has operated a Veterans Residential Facility since 1989. More than 2000 veterans and their families have benefited from this program since its beginning. We own the facility where our current program is housed and in partnership with state, county, and city government, with veterans organizations, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, and with our individual comrades-in-arms and other supporters it is our intention to continue to operate this worthwhile program to assist veterans and their family members who are less fortunate than we.
