For Veterans coming to VLP for the first time, we want to make sure the experience is as seamless as possible. Below are a few common questions we receive regarding our services and eligibility for programs.
Who does VLP assist?
We serve ALL Veterans and Service Members regardless of era of service, Veteran Administration (VA) eligibility or discharge status. If you are living in one of our 18 counties or if you are relocating to the area, you are welcome at Veterans Leadership Program.
Am I eligible for VLP services?
To find out if you are eligible to receive VLP services and if we have availability in our programs, please call our offices at (412) 481-8200 to make an intake appointment.
What should I bring with me to my intake appointment?
Please be sure to bring the following:
- DD214, or proof of Veteran status
- A letter or proof of homelessness, which can be from a landlord, family member, friend, shelter or religious organization
- Verification of income, which can include pay stubs, unemployment compensation, SSI, SSDI, VA income or self-declaration of income
- Any documents pertaining to evictions or utility shut-off notices
- Children’s information including birth certificates and social security cards
Who will I meet when I first come to VLP?
When you arrive at VLP, you will be greeted by our receptionists, Ms. Hannah and Ms. Kristin, who will ask you to sign in and fill out important documents. Once you are finished completing our intake packet, you will meet with an intake specialist or a case manager.
When should I expect to hear back after my initial meeting at VLP?
Our program supervisors meet twice a week to review new intake files. After our case managers meet, you should hear back within 7-10 business days after your initial appointment. Please note that all situations are handled on a case-by-case basis.
