Transitional Housing

New Directions for Veterans (NDVets) operates three transitional residential facilities in West Los Angeles.


Vocational Mens Program

NDVets’ flagship building opened in 1995 after an extensive rehab of the 60,000-square-foot Building 116 on the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System campus. There, the agency runs two transitional housing programs for male veterans.

Veteran Opportunity Center East (VOCE)

VOCE has a 132-person capacity and offers transitional housing and comprehensive support services for homeless veterans, including:

  • case management
  • substance abuse support and other support groups
  • mental health services
  • workforce development
  • free legal assistance
  • clean, safe rooms
  • kitchen and dining facilities, with meals provided
  • meeting rooms
  • gymnasium


Veteran Opportunity Center West (VOCW)

VOCW has a 50-person capacity and is a distinguished dual-diagnosis program that provides substance abuse treatment and mental health services for homeless veterans with addiction and mental health disorders.

Accelerated Re-housing Center

ARC provides formerly homeless veterans with a safe place to stay while they are securing their housing units. The priority in this program is permanent housing, with veterans often working with VASH or SSVF case managers through the process. In the interim, participants may take advantage of some of the supportive services offered.

New Directions Oasis for Veteran Women

New Directions Oasis for Veteran Women serves homeless female veterans in two separate facilities: Mitchell House and Keaveney House. The Oasis for Veteran Women offers substance abuse rehabilitation, trauma counseling, parenting classes, and job-training. NDVets serves displaced female veterans and dependents of veterans.
