The Massachusetts Department of Veterans' Services contracts with several nonprofit organizations in order to provide housing for eligible homeless veterans. Housing services include Emergency Homeless Shelters, group residences, and Single Room Occupancy (SRO) quarters. Among the DVS providers are the only Veterans' Hospice in the nation, and a program for veterans with head injuries. Housing services are provided for male and female veterans. All residences maintain a sober, drug-free environment.
