Haven for Hope in San Antonio Texas is a transitional living environment. It provides shelter and needed services for homeless people of Bexar county Texas.

In the recent past the Health and Human Sciences Department ran In House Recovery Program (IHRP) allowing all veterans who served the United States and are residences of Bexar county Texas no matter their separation code entry into said recovery program. Now, a recent change has taken place stating that if a veteran has benefits to allow them into a VA recovery program they have to attend it not the IHRP program at Haven.

This is discrimination based on financial means that could lead to the possible death of a veteran that served the same county that provides funding for the same said program. In the past veterans who have went through the VA program have come to the IHRP and said they have benefited more from it and it's 12 step based program more and are still in recovery.

We veterans members of Haven for Hope hereby petition Haven for Hope to continue to allow all veteran candidates acceptance to IHRP at Haven for Hope regardless of their benefit status. Hoping that no veteran be put on a waiting list to possibly die on the streets who could of been saved by being part of a recovery program.

We humbly ask that Haven for Hope continue accepting all veterans who meet the previous necessary criteria for acceptance to the IHRP in Haven for Hope. Thank you for your concern and service fellow veterans and for your support fellow citizens of our great country the United States of America.
