Supportive Services for Veteran Families Now Available in Linn, Benton, and Lincoln Counties

Beginning in October 2013, Community Services Consortium (CSC) is administering the Coming Home Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program in Linn, Benton, and Lincoln counties. CSC has partnered with St. Vincent DePaul of Lane County to expand this VA-funded program into our service territory. The program is designed to help homeless and at-risk veterans and their families obtain and maintain permanent housing. 

CSC hopes to enroll 50 veteran families in this program in the next 12 months. CSC’s newest Housing Case Manager, Paul Barnes, is already connecting with local shelters and VA representatives to publicize the program’s availability. SSVF is an exciting addition to the rental assistance services currently offered by CSC, and we look forward to serving those who have served our country so selflessly. 

For more information on eligibility for this program, contact Paul Barnes at 541-704-7648 or

Welcome to CSC's blog and e-newsletter!

These communications tools can be used to make announcements, acknowledge donors and volunteers, post videos and slideshows–whatever we want to share with our online community.

There are 3 ways to deliver info to stakeholders:

  1. The blog itself, which can be linked to our current website
  2. Email news blasts (blog articles sent via email as eNewsletters)
  3. RSS Feed (subscribers read in Google Reader or other feed reader, can also send posts to Facebook and Twitter)
We're excited about these communication tools and look forward to both your input and feedback for continuing improvement and positive information-sharing.

If you have agency/program information you'd like posted on this blog, please send full text and/or photos and videos, ideas, or suggestions to Janet Hessel and she will take the next steps.
