The organization provides housing, transportation and assistance to veterans. In addition, the organization moves veterans through various housing levels based on achievement. Sixty percent of the participants are integrated back into mainstream society.
The emergency shelter provides essential support services for twenty-four homeless veterans who are housed at our yaphank facility known as "the veterans place". Scuv provides full-time case managers who are responsible for assisting homeless veterans in overcoming critical obstacles to their attainment of drug/alcohol free, self-sufficient, and independent lifestyles.
the transitional housing program provides seven levels of housing available to veterans at the organization. These levels enable us to accept all veterans. A communal living arrangement is created in which veterans help other veterans who have been through similar experiences.
the peer to peer program provides eight peer support groups which are facilitated by veterans who have been selected and trained and which are a diverse group with respect to gender, ethnicity, and era and branch of military service in hopes that the support groups will attract the maximum number of veterans. The groups meet in different sites across suffolk county and include bellport, yaphank, bay shore, patchogue, huntington, brentwood, stony brook, and riverhead. The groups intervene on the damaging and costly impact of post-traumatic stress disorder among new and past veterans. In suffolk, the project is overseen by the county's veteran service agency and operated by suffolk county united veterans.

Suffolk County Veteran Halfway House is helping homeless Veterans with temporary housing, food and teaching them skills. I have been volunteering for about a year teaching the men to cook and help them with other skills that will help them when they can get out on their own. These men have sacrificed to give us our freedom and come back from service to no jobs or housing. They have been taught skills that are for military service but will not help them when they return home. This organization assists these men in learning new skills that will help them in looking for jobs. I have hooked into partnering with Bed, Bath and Beyond. They have been supplying us with pillows, blankets, etc. things these men need now and when they leave the temporary housing they will take those things with them. I am so honored to be working with them, they deserve only the best things in life for the incredible sacrifices they have made to keep us free.
