UESF Complete Housing Resources for Veterans

Those who serve our country often return to challenges that can threaten housing stability. UESF works with Veterans and Veteran families who are experiencing homelessness or are at imminent risk of losing their homes. Our range of services helps them acquire the resources to become stable.

Using a housing-first case management model, UESF provides services including housing acquisition and landlord negotiation, VA benefit assistance, mainstream benefits, legal assistance referrals, self-sufficiency education, and temporary financial assistance when needed.

To be eligible, individuals and families must:

Be a Veteran or a family member in which head of household or spouse of head of household is a Veteran. An eligible Veteran is a person that served active duty in the US Military/Armed Forces. Reservists and Guardsmen are not eligible unless activated under presidential order.

Have received a discharge status that states anything other than dishonorably discharged.

Have an income at or below 50% of Area Median Income (to be determined at time of application).

Be facing one of the following housing issues:
Pending eviction from current residence;
Homelessness – An individual or family who lacks a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence and is living in places such as: car, park, abandoned building, bus or train station, airport or camping ground, shelter, transitional housing or exiting an institution where he or she temporarily resided.


If you are a veteran facing a housing crisis or utility termination please call 215-814-6888 or 215-814-6844, leave a message with your contact information and someone will get back to you within 48 hours at the latest. You can also send us a message through the "contact us" tab on our website: http://www.uesfacts.org/contact/ Note "Veteran" and someone from our Vet Program will contact you.

UESF Complete Housing Resources for Vets helps homeless or at risk vets with housing stabilization, financial assistance, job leads & legal referrals.

UESF is committed to a holistic, preventive, and cost-efficient approach to assisting vulnerable families impacted by housing crises. We are a one-stop shop that offers immediate resources and empowers families to address the root causes of their utility and housing crisis.

Established in 1983, UESF focused exclusively on providing emergency utility assistance for our first 26 years. This financial aid, delivered through utility grants, helped families facing utility shut-offs remain in their homes. The program continues today. Every dollar provided is matched by our utility partners, doubling our impact.

In recent years, UESF has come to see utility assistance as part of a larger housing stability issue. We’ve expanded our programs to address the broader housing challenges facing low-income families. This allows us to focus on a more comprehensive goal: housing stabilization.

As part of our housing stabilization strategy, we partner with multiple community organizations and seek all resources available to help keep families in their homes.
