Because only together we can
build a world where EVERYONE IS safe, strong & valued
WHO WE ARE
Progress House Veterans Project: We are a veteran owned and operated transitional housing program. Although we included many non-veterans to the program, our outreach focus is towards military veterans with combat stress/PTSD, TBI (Traumatic brain injury), substance abuse, and other service related issues. Our desire is to provide a safe, supportive, drug and alcohol free transition living environment for our warriors (men and women).
New residents receive personal attention as soon as they enter our office for the initial intake and assessment process after which they are assigned to a specific location most suitable to their specific needs. At their new “home”, the resident again receives personal attention from the live in house manager and introduced to his new housemates. Every effort is made to assist the new resident feel safe and secure in their new surroundings.
WHAT WE DO
— Drug and Alcohol Testing
Abstinence from alcohol and illicit drugs are a requirement for residency. We conduct random multi-substance urinalysis and electronic breathalyzer tests for all residents.
— Court Liaison
Progress House staff, if requested in advance, can be present at court hearings. Often residents are either sentenced directly from court to Progress House for a period of time and/or released from incarceration into Progress House custody.
— Progress Reports
Progress House management can provide individualized resident progress reports to any agency requesting such documentation.
— Service Referrals
Progress House does not provide treatment or psychotherapy although the internal structure within our homes will require lifestyle changes. Many outpatient clinics, therapists and hospitals provide local assistance to many of our residents. We have an ordained minister on staff that can provide short term, problem solving, pastoral counsel via Point Man Ministries South Bay.
— Veterans Projects
Progress House is veteran owned and operated. We have been providing clean and sober housing since 1991. In January 2013, the Orenda Veterans Project was launched in Apple Valley, CA that is dedicated specifically for our veterans. Our nation is experiencing a huge influx of our newest generation of veterans. Combined with existing veterans of earlier times, and the current economic and unemployment situation, a very urgent need now exists to provide assistance to our veterans
