Services For Veterans
Housing and treatment services for homeless veterans struggling with substance abuse
On any given night 48,000 veterans are homeless. 2,399 of those veterans are in New York State (Department of Housing and Urban Development). This leaves New York State ranking 3rd among the states with most homeless veterans. Since 2010, the number of homeless veterans has steadily decreased. In 2016, Mayor Lovely Warren declared Rochester as a city without homeless veterans. Cadence Square is proud to be a part of that movement.
FLACRA’s Cadence Square Housing Program is an OASAS Certified program designed for Veterans. It supports three housing programs: Community Residence, Supportive Living, and Independent Living.
Cadence Square is a Community Residence for veterans struggling with a substance use disorder, mental health needs, or homelessness. FLACRA works closely with the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) in Canandaigua to offer counseling and residential services.
Supportive Living Apartments are available at Cadence Square and serve as a transitional step to independent living. Veterans living in our supportive living apartments have access to case managers, services at the VAMC, outpatient treatment programs, and weekly resident meetings. Public transportation is available. Additionally, FLACRA operates a small number of apartments at Victory House, located a short walk from the VAMC campus and on public transportation routes.
Cadence Square Apartments offers independent living on the Canandaigua VA Medical Center (VAMC) Campus in a new, quiet, pristine environment. The unique location allows veterans direct access to VAMC services just a short walk from their home. HUD and VASH vouchers are accepted for rent. FLACRA staff serves as a landlord. Service animals are allowed. There are one, two, and three-bedroom apartments available.
