LUBBOCK, Texas -

 

News release: 

StarCare Specialty Health System (StarCare) received special Coronavirus (COVID-19) funding from the Department of Veterans Affairs to expand its Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program in order to assist local Veterans facing eviction and homelessness.

Administered by StarCare’s VetStar division, the SSVF program assists eligible Veteran families facing a housing
crisis with peer support and temporary financial assistance for rent, utilities, childcare and other stabilizing services. Veterans should call the VetStar SSVF Office at (806) 470-9317 to speak with a Veteran case manager about program terms and eligibility.

SSVF Supervisor Steven Lara encourages any low-income Veteran family facing eviction, homelessness or the need to find new shelter during COVID-19 to call today.

“These past few months have been challenging, especially for many family’s wallets,” Lara said. “This is a great opportunity for local Veterans who may be facing new challenges because of the COVID-19 pandemic to use benefits they earned through their military service. Help is a phone call away.”

This program serves Veteran families who live in the counties of: Armstrong, Bailey, Borden, Briscoe, Carson, Castro, Cochran, Crosby, Dawson, Deaf Smith, Dickens, Donley, Floyd, Gaines, Garza, Gray, Hale, Hall, Hockley, Hutchinson, Lamb, Lubbock, Lynn, Motley, Parmer, Potter, Randall, Terry, Swisher and Yoakum.
