Our Veterans Transitional Supportive Program is a special six-month program for homeless veterans designed to help them become self supporting. Services include substance abuse treatment, work therapy, case management, individual and group counseling, medical and psychiatric follow-up and after-care planning.

The Rhode Island Veterans Home is more than just a building - it is a community in every sense of the word. Residents, staff, volunteers and the families of residents contribute to making it a place where veterans receive top-notch care in a warm, friendly, yet dignified environment.

There is a library on campus, as well as a gift shop, a bank, a barber shop and a beautician. Religious services for all denominations are provided and many activities, including movies, crafts, card games, bingo, birthday parties and cookouts take place on a regular basis for the enjoyment of our residents.
