Compensated Work Therapy (CWT) Program

The CWT Program provides job development and counseling services to Veterans with a wide range of barriers to employment, which may include medical and/or mental health disorders, homelessness, and any combination thereof.

VA Medical Foster Home Program

VA offers a program called Medical Foster Home (MFH) for Veterans who need help living on their own. It's like a nursing home, but in a private home setting with a caregiver who provides daily care and supervision. The caregiver can help the Veteran carry out activities of daily living, like bathing and getting dressed. VA ensures that the caregiver is well trained to provide VA planned care.

We are also looking for individuals or families who would like to open up their home to Veterans and become a Medical Foster Home caregiver.
