Presbyterian Night Shelter has one of the most successful transitional housing programs for veterans in the United States, preparing them for permanent, independent housing within 24 months.
With semi-private facilities, veterans can prepare their own meals and have separate recreation, as well as access to showers, laundry services and a computer lab.
Presbyterian Night Shelter works with Veterans Affairs to secure and retain employment for homeless veteran clients, move them into permanent housing and eliminate or minimize barriers to continued self-sufficiency.
Veterans seeking assistance follow the same process for access to the emergency shelter as all general population clients. Once inside, they can complete and submit a request to get into the Presbyterian Night Shelter’s Veterans Voice Program. The form is located in the case management office at the Main Shelter. At that time their name goes on the waiting list. They can also go to the VA Homeless Program in Fort Worth at 1518 E. Lancaster and enroll in that program for placement on the Grant and Per Diem list. To determine eligibility for VA services, they will need to go to the Fort Worth Outpatient Clinic and meet with the benefits staff to determine VA service eligibility.
