Last program year (10/1/2014-9/30/2015) 231 militay households contacted Supportive Service for Veteran Families (SSVF). Of that number 53 were literally homeless and provided with housing, 42 were assisted to avoid homelessness, and 136 were linked with other resources in the community. The SSVF grant was renewed for another year. LCCH also received and updated a single-family home to be used as housing for a homeless SSVF-eligible veteran.
The property management team maintained 12 single family homes for over 35 adults with developmental disabilities. 385 work orders were completed, new flooring was installed at several properties and substantial upgrades were made to a single-family home for the SSVF program.
23 IRS-certified community volunteers contributed 724 hours to the VITA program in 2015, preparing 918 tax returns. $1,093,974 in federal and state refunds were due to LCCH/VITA clients, whose average AGI was $17,272.
Many groups and individuals gave their time and talents to support LCCH programs and activities, providing over 1225 volunteer hours to the agency this year, in a variety of capacities.
