The Haven for Hope mission is to offer a place of hope and new beginnings. We do this by providing, coordinating and delivering an efficient system of care for people experiencing homelessness in San Antonio.
The National Veterans Outreach Program (NVOP) provides housing programs that help homeless veterans with families quickly exit homelessness and provides affordable apartment housing for low-income elderly.
After a woman has completed treatment for addiction, she needs a home where she can stay sober, build relationships, and recreate her skills. Deborah’s House provides a safe, structured home-like environment for women in transition from substance abuse treatment to a life of self-sustainable confidence. Female mentors share compassionate guidance with each woman, while supporting her spiritual and personal growth until she is ready to face the world on her own.
Endeavors provides a safe, healthy, stable, and caring environment to chronically homeless women with disabilities and their children.
Through permanent supportive housing, these families receive case management, professional counseling, life skills training, and employment opportunities, allowing them to increase self-sufficiency and family income, while decreasing episodes of homelessness and/or acute psychiatric care.
We offer a home to those who have protected ours. Whenever a veteran doesn't have any place to go, it's an honor to give them a place to rest their head, a hot meal, help finding employment, and a fresh start.
VA’s specialized programs for homeless Veterans serve hundreds of thousands of homeless and at-risk Veterans each year. Independently and in collaboration with federal and community partners, VA programs provide Veterans with housing solutions, employment opportunities, health care, justice- and reentry-related services and more.

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
Veterans who need assistance obtaining food may qualify for help through SNAP. Formerly known as food stamps, the program provides those who qualify with a monthly grant that can be used to purchase food at the grocery store or farmer’s market. The size of your grant depends on the number of dependents in your household and your current income. To qualify for SNAP, you have to meet the low-income requirements, and be a citizen or legal immigrant.
Veterans in need of food support can register now to get approximately 75 lbs. of groceries, at no cost.
CEAP is designed to assist low income households in meeting their immediate energy needs and to encourage consumers to control energy costs for years to come through energy education.
This invaluable program is our commitment to provide help to pay energy bills for customers who qualify for assistance.
General Assistance –
Many states offer cash assistance to those who do not have dependent children. They do this through a program called General Assistance, which is part of the nationwide program called Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). The program provides cash assistance that can be used to help pay living expenses, including buying food, paying rent, transportation, and paying bills. Not all states offer General Assistance, but many do. To qualify, you have to meet the low-income guidelines and be a citizen or legal immigrant.
