Ending homelessness for America’s Veteran families

Operation Sacred Trust is a service provider of homeless and low-income Veterans with decades of experience and dedication to enhancing quality of life for others.

We are proud of our compassionate OST care program designed to help people maintain housing stability.

OST Program

The Operation Sacred Trust (“OST”) Program is charged with bringing unique approaches, experiences and expertise to serve homeless and low-income Veterans in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, located in the heart of South Florida. These counties have been hit particularly hard by the economic downturn as evidenced by the high level of poverty, low median income and skyrocketing foreclosure rates. Veterans have been particularly affected, with over 1,000 homeless Veterans and over 20,000 low-income Veterans living in the service area.

Operation Sacred Trust is unique in that it combines proven traditional outreach and case management best practices with novel nontraditional service delivery methods. Funding for this initiative has been awarded by the Veterans Administration Supportive Services for Veteran Families program.

Purpose Built Families Foundation

Purpose Built Families Foundation’s Operation Sacred Trust (OST) collaboration is a nationally accredited, public-private partnership for homelessness prevention and rapid rehousing. Fundamental to the approach of OST is attention to factors that create, contribute to, and address problems in living as reflected by challenges to housing stability for low-income Veteran families.

Vision of Operation Sacred Trust

The vision of Operation Sacred Trust, funded by the Veterans Administration Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program, is to improve very low-income Veteran families’ housing stability.

The program provides outreach, case management, and resiliency services and will assist participants to obtain VA benefits and other public benefits, such as: health care services, daily living services, personal financial planning services, transportation services, fiduciary and payee services, legal services, child care services, housing counseling services, temporary financial assistance (including time-limited payments to third parties for rent, utilities, moving expenses, security and utility deposits, transportation, child care and emergency supplies).
