Supportive Housing for Homeless Veterans
Valley Brook Village is a first of its kind VASH (Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing) community for homeless veterans, situated on the Lyons Campus of the Department of Veterans Affairs New Jersey Health Care System in Lyons, New Jersey. Residential common spaces form a village-style community on 16+ acres and feature sixty-two furnished, one and two bedroom apartment homes with shared community space, ample program space, landscaped walkways and shared outdoor spaces. Highlights include access to a state-of-the art learning center on-site and a vocational training space under the programming of the Employment Training Specialist.
In addition, an array of supportive services/amenities, are provided by Community Hope under the coordination of Peabody Resident Services, Inc. and are designed to assist the formerly homeless Veterans and at-risk, low income Veterans to meet their own goals, while linking them to support services and health care available at the medical facility right next door.
All residents are referred by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Sixty-two formerly homeless veterans now call Valley Brook Village home!
