Veterans Housing in East Hartford, CT 

Homeless veterans get help with housing, jobs, and health care at Veterans Crossing

Veterans Crossing is a 12-room handicapped accessible, transitional rooming house for homeless male veterans located in East Hartford. Veterans may stay for up to one year. We help residents look for work, save for an apartment and connect with support services. Vets are linked with all VA services (medical, mental health and substance abuse). Help with money management, life skills, counseling, and referrals are available. English and Spanish speakers welcome.

To Apply
Referrals are accepted from Veterans Affairs (VA), the CT Department of Correction (DOC), the CT Judicial Branch (CSSD) or the Veteran himself. Veterans may call the program to be connected with the VA Liaison. The liaison will help prepare the referral packet. We do not accept registered sex offenders, arsonists, or individuals with a history of violent offenses.

Residents must be:

  • Male and homeless
  • A veteran without a dishonorable discharge
  • 18 years or older
  • Drug free and sober
  • Able to live safely in an unsupervised setting
  • Willing to commit to a recovery plan
  • Willing to search for work and participate in activities at least 35 hours per week
