VSH, through a partnership with HIGH Hopes, developed Independence House, a six unit supportive housing facility for persons with Traumatic Brain or Spinal Cord injury. Supportive services are available to empower tenants to become more independent and healthy by accessing community resources for basic human needs, re-learning certain skills, participating in education activities or gaining employment. Applicants are referred from agencies, family members and survivors themselves.
Residents pay 30% of their individual monthly income in rent. The remaining rent is subsidized by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and Section 811 Program. Supportive services at Independence House are supported in part by a grant administered by the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services.
