Homelessness is the primary condition that brings veterans to CVI. Getting veterans into a safe and supportive environment is a critical first step in helping a veteran address the range of issues that may be on his/her plate. CVI helps veterans get at the underlying causes on the road to independence and self-sufficiency. Think of CVI as a safe harbor on your journey toward life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. CVI operates transitional and permanent housing facilities across Wisconsin.
