Veteran Welcome Home Program Services

Our Welcome Home Program provides the following services to veterans in need through our partnership with the PAServes Network:

  • Beds – We provide veterans who are entering permanent housing with brand new beds (frame, mattress & box spring).  Beds are provided for each veteran and all immediate family members living with them.
  • Welcome Home Kits – We provide veterans with all the household essentials needed to maintain residence, so that they do not have to purchase them out of pocket. These items include brand new:  cookware, bakeware, dishes, glassware, silverware, kitchen utensils, bathroom accessories, cleaning and laundry supplies, towels, bedding, and linens, and small appliances.
  • Transportation – OTA is committed to the health and well-being of our veterans by providing transportation to attend doctor appointments, physical therapy sessions, counseling, court appointments and job interviews.  
If you are a veteran in need of help, please apply through  the PAServes network. This network not only provides access to Operation Troop Appreciation services, it will provide you with information on additional benefits you may be entitled to.
