Housing for Homeless Veterans
Homeless veterans get help with housing, jobs, and health care at CRT’s Veterans Crossing facility in East Hartford.
Veterans Crossing is a 12-room handicapped accessible, bridge housing for homeless male veterans located in East Hartford. 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.
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.
Note: 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
- Able to live safely in an unsupervised setting
- Willing to engage in program services
- Willing to search for work and participate in activities at least 35 hours per week
- Committed to securing permanent housing as quickly as possible

“Veterans Crossing has been a wonderful stepping stone for me. It is getting me ready for independent living and normalcy. The staff told me right up front, you are a grown man and this is not the kind of program where we’re going to hold your hand every day. We’ll show you the road map and we’ll give you a compass, but you have to get there on your own.”
