Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP)
Almost half of Missouri’s veterans live in St. Louis. In addition, over a million reside in Illinois. Tragically, many of these vets are homeless, and many of them are forced to come across the Mississippi River to obtain services available at St. Patrick Center.
In HVRP, veterans receive the support services they need, such as referral for substance-abuse and mental health issues; job readiness classes, which provide four days of interviewing skills training, resume writing and instruction in appropriate on-the-job conduct. Veterans receive $15-a-day stipend and an additional $15 for perfect attendance.

Through a working relationship with the Department of Mental Health and the Veterans Administration, St. Patrick Center launched Project HERO (Housing, Employment & Recovery Opportunities) in 2008 as a program designed to move homeless veterans toward permanent housing, self sufficiency and community integration. When a veteran first enters the HERO program, they are housed in their own apartment. By giving a clean and dignified environment, the individual is safe to make future plans while anticipating success. Veterans are required to pay one third of their income toward rent and all utility costs while in program.
