The Veterans Group
The Veterans Group (TVG) is a homeless facility serving Veterans in the Philadelphia area and especially those whose service resulted in mental health and physical health issues. Established in 2007, the organization is located in the Powelton Village section of West Philadelphia, near the VA Medical Center. TVG offers lodging, 3 nutritional meals each day, services and assistance with finding a job, and free assistance with obtaining DL214 discharge, which is mandatory to gaining medical benefits. This vulnerable homeless population is a product of combat related injury, PTSD, and associated mental health illness. The goal of TVG is for our Veterans to live in peace as productive members of civilian society, and the organization accomplishes this mission by developing individualized plans for each resident while providing a family-like community of support and care.
