Without a safe environment and supportive housing and services, many veterans could not break the cycle of homelessness and move on to permanent housing.
Rock Valley Community Programs, Inc. (RVCP) has renovated 24 studio apartments (each with separate kitchenette and bathroom) to offer transitional housing and supportive services to homeless veterans. Each unit provides housing for two (2) homeless veterans, with the ability to serve 48 veterans at a time. RVCP works in conjunction with our supportive service providers at the Department of Veteran Affairs Madison Medical Center as well as local agencies to offer a comprehensive menu of services and supports that can be readily adjusted to meet each individual’s needs and pathways.
A sober living environment will be maintained and random breathalyzer and urinalysis testing will be conducted. Veterans can stay for up to 24 months before transitioning to permanent housing. Rock Valley Community Programs, Inc. is currently renovating an existing wing to provide long-term, single occupancy housing for veterans who successfully complete the transitional program.
A “Veteran’s Community” is our focus. Everything necessary for daily living is available on-site; to include, a community room, fitness room, walking path, laundry facility, resource room (library, computers, and internet access), cafeteria (three nutritious, balanced meals per day are provided), transportation, barber services, chapel, slightly used clothing closet, computer training lab, substance abuse recovery support services, including group sessions focusing on maintaining sobriety, and life-skills classes. Blackhawk Technical College is conveniently located next door to the facility. RVCP hosts events on a regular basis to encourage camaraderie and to maintain morale.
