New Horizons Transitional Living

What is the New Horizons Transitional Living Program?

New Horizons is a transitional living program for up to 20 homeless veterans.  It was formerly a hotel, and there are 14 efficiency apartments and 3 shared rooms. There are two tracks for participation in the program: 1) the Bridge program for residents who need short-term assistance while waiting for identified housing to become available and 2) the Service program for veterans who need three months or longer to obtain employment, save money for housing, address recovery and/or legal concerns, and complete other goals as needed.

Who is eligible for the New Horizons Program at Veterans Path to Hope?

  • For this program, “Veteran” means anyone discharged or released from active service—regardless of length of service—excluding anyone who received a dishonorable discharge or was discharged though a general court-martial. A bad conduct discharge can result from a general court-martial or a special court-martial. Anyone with a bad conduct discharge from a general court-martial is ineligible; anyone with a bad conduct discharge from a special court-martial is eligible.
