Patriots' Landing

Overview

History

Since 1864, the CT Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) at Rocky Hill has offered a continuum of services designed to assist Veterans in need. The Patriots’ Landing Temporary Housing Program for Veteran couples and families was established in 2014 in response to a growing need to provide housing services to Veteran couples and families that were homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

Overview

The Patriots’ Landing houses are located on West St. in Rocky Hill. There are five separate single family three (3) bedroom homes that can accommodate Veterans, their spouses and children. All houses are completely furnished; equipped with kitchen supplies, bedding, furniture, washers & dryers, and full kitchens. All houses are smoke free and pets are not permitted*. 

  • Housing will be provided on a month to month basis, not to exceed twelve (12) months. Unless extended by the DVA for not more than two six month periods based on specified extenuating circumstances. 
  • Participants are expected to pay a monthly housing Program Fee. 
  • Participants are expected to comply with all terms and conditions listed in the Patriots’ Landing Temporary Housing Program Agreement, which will be provided upon admission.

Supportive Services

Through a collaborative effort between the Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs and Chrysalis Center Inc., a case manager will be assigned to assist couples and families with individual recovery plans to return them to independent living in the community. Case managers will also offer career and educational assistance as well as resume writing, networking and interviewing skills.
