What are Special Needs & Veterans Housing?
Special Needs – Vet Housing is a combination of affordable housing and support services designed to help individuals and families use housing as a platform for health and recovery following a period of homelessness, hospitalization or incarceration or for youth aging out of foster care.
Supportive housing is affordable, permanent and independent housing that meets the needs of tenants by providing support and that is integrated within a neighborhood and community. Veteran housing uses the same structure as special needs housing but is geared towards vets. We place veterans with veterans and they live together as a family unit providing each other with a support network from house mates that understand each other and help each other thru any issues that one may be experiencing. Its truly amazing the bond that these housing scenarios build between the tenants. With vacancy rates and turn-overs being so low, basically zero, these houses fill up very fast and remain full year after year. This is beneficial for both the property owner and tenant.
The two primary types of housing are:
- Single-site (also referred to as congregate): A designated building where each individual or family has a private living quarters and may share kitchens and/or common recreational rooms or other facilities.
- Scattered-site: units in apartment buildings spread throughout a neighborhood or community that are designated for specific populations, accompanied by supportive services
How Does This Type of Housing Work? Permanent housing w/ support services provides individuals and families coming from a period of homelessness, hospitalization or incarceration with:
- Integrated, quality housing: Residential apartment buildings are located in all communities throughout New York City. Supportive housing reflects housing options available to others at similar income levels in the community and meets standards for safety and quality established by local, state, and federal laws and regulations and;
- Standard lease and rental assistance: Tenants sign a standard lease. Continued tenancy is not subject to any special rules or participation in any particular services. Tenants pay 30 percent of their income toward rent.

Competition in this area of real estate is non-existent with a very low point of entry. This is due to the difficulty in getting in with the VA and other sub-agencies. 99% of investors who try to get in with these agencies never get to even see a client/tenant from the VA or any sub agencies and if they do some how get a tenant they will get the most difficult tenants that the agency has to offer. You are getting the turn downs from our group or some other mom and pop landlords turn downs. The VA and the sub-agencies will continue to give you their more difficult tenants until you have proven yourself to them. This took about 2 years for us to get through. And if you are able to get through it without getting frustrated then and maybe then they will allow you start to choose your tenants. And this is only if they see value in what you offer, your locations are kept top notch and most importantly you treat the clients well. Let me not forget to point out how difficult it is to navigate the agencies, the programs and how difficult it is just getting past the gatekeeper. So you can see why competition is so low and the rewards for those who do get in are so high.
