Through our Operation Homecoming program, Sabot Foundation helps and provides direct assistance in the Los Angeles Metro Area for at-risk and homeless veterans in collaboration with a Los Angeles-based realty group that owns/operates 11 multi-unit properties located in areas from West Los Angeles to the San Fernando Valley, totaling over 300 units. We also work with the Veterans Administration as well as veterans in The Domiciliary Care Program, the Department of Veterans Affairs oldest health care program, established through legislation passed in the late 1860’s, after the Civil War. Several of these properties have been approved through the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program (HUD-VASH). This collaboration allows us to provide housing solutions along with integrating our programs to assist veterans who are at-risk or homeless.
The Foundation conducts its outreach in Los Angeles, the second-largest city in the U.S. by population and the second-largest homeless population not only for Homeless but also at-risk/homeless veterans. With our Operation Homecoming program, the foundation has assisted several veterans in these two classes in obtaining housing mostly in remodeled units or other available properties.
The collaborative program (VASH) between HUD and VA combines HUD housing support with VA supportive services to help Veterans who are homeless and their families find and sustain permanent housing. By utilizing this program and connecting with our property partners, there is an ability to have properties immediately available for veterans in need, primarily homeless and at-risk veterans.
Our assistance does not stop at housing though. Veterans require supplemental assistance such as transportation assist, mobile communication, furnishings, medical, resume assistance, food, clothing, hygienic items, grooming etc. The additional assistance helps increase independence and self-confidence.
Sabot Foundation focuses on forging partnerships and creating relationships with local community organizations and employers who have the ability to hire Veterans in additional areas which may fit their skill sets so that they may return to competitive employment.
