Veterans Services

The Salvation Army of the Coastal Bend is honored to serve our veterans and their families. Through the TVC Grant, we are able to help in several ways.

The TVC grant assists Veterans with short-term rental assistance and utility assistance. We can Rapidly rehouse veterans by paying for their application fee, security deposit and 1st months rent. Payment for past due rent and utilities is also available through this program.    Surviving spouses are also welcome to apply and can received the same services.
The process is simple. Any veteran, veteran dependent, or surviving spouse can make an appointment by calling our main line (361)884-9497 or do a walk in to apply for assistance.
Once the application is complete, the Case Worker will go over an assistance plan with them and they will receive monthly case management . We also refer them to our other services such as the food pantry.
The Salvation Army offers a 10-bed transitional housing to any veteran experiencing homelessness. This program assists veterans in finding a job, securing housing, creating a budget, obtaining education and more.
