Homeless Military Veterans 

​Veterans Administration addresses, phone numbers, and types of facilities that are available for homeless military veterans near Denver, Colorado. 

Although hard to get in touch with, the VA does have an entire section devoted to assisting homeless military veterans. These services and benefits the VA offers are generally attached to the Mental Health section of the hospital or clinic. Homeless military veterans are able to get referrals to local temporary or transitional shelters. The social worker or case manager is able to look up each homeless military veteran's "Grant Per Diem" record to see if they have been used. All military service-members (minus bad conduct discharge) rate three Grant Per Diem during their life. For the homeless military veteran this means that three times you are able to be taken off the streets instantly and given temporary shelter at an inspected and approved Grand Per Diem eligible facility. The duration of each Grant Per Diem referral is generally six-months but can be extended if necessary. This can vary depending on the facility and social worker but generally you can expect:

  • Assistance getting documents
  • Meals to be covered
  • Resources for getting clothing
  • Housing application assistance
  • Assistance applying for benefits
  • Scheduling for medical needs
  • Referrals

What a Grant Per Diem approved facility might look like. 

Cherokee House 

The Cherokee House was an approved Grant Per Diem program for homeless military veterans that closed in 2015. Cherokee House was located inside of the Denver Cares facility at 16th & Cherokee Street in downtown Denver. Denver Cares is a Denver Health detox facility which is also home to the Denver Health TRT program which is similar to the Cherokee House but for non-military.
