SERVING THOSE
WHO SERVED FIRST.

Join us in our mission to ensure that no Veteran is left behind.

At UVOC, our mission is to provide wraparound supportive services to Veterans in Central Louisiana. Through our TIP (a GPD Transition In Place) program, we offer transitional housing and a range of supportive services that are tailored to each Veteran’s needs. Our mission is to provide homeless Veterans and their families with a supportive transitional housing environment that offers a range of wraparound services to meet their unique needs. Our goal is to empower Veterans to achieve stability and self-sufficiency, by providing a safe and supportive environment that offers the resources and support they need to successfully transition from homelessness to permanent housing. Our commitment to our Veterans is reflected in our dedication to providing compassionate care and tailored services that honor their sacrifices and service to our country. Join us in our mission to ensure that no Veteran is left behind.

STORIES OF HOPE.

At our program, we value the stories and experiences of our veterans. Hearing about their journeys and how our program has positively impacted their lives is what motivates us to keep doing what we’re doing. Their testimonials serve as a reminder of the important work we do, and we are honored to be a part of their journey towards finding a new life.

“They found someone who was hanging on to life by a thread, and not only helped me up, but built a bridge. God bless UVOC…”
