HOW TO STay here

Three categories of individuals may stay at the PVCH or use PVCH services: Homeless vets sponsored by the VA, homeless vets sponsored by the PVCH and family members of homeless vets of either category.
All applicants must first go to the Social Work office, 8th floor, of the VA Hospital at 38th and Woodland in Philadelphia to apply for residence. After 4pm, applicants may come to PVCH for one overnight stay, but they will report to VA Social Work office at 8am following morning. To stay here after normal hours, before VA visit in morning, or to use PVCH services, all applicants must have proof of vet status of either VA card, military ID or DD214 with appropriate picture ID. No exceptions.
VA Social Work will generally give 2 week stay vouchers, though extensions are sometimes granted. During any stay here, troopers will adhere to PVCH regs and chain of command, as PVCH is run like a platoon. Failure to do so will result in eviction.
After VA sponsorship time expires, troopers may apply to PVCH PCS program for stays up to six months. Admittance to PCS is based on performance during VA sponsorship period. Space into this program is very limited.
During business hours, M-F, 9-5, other non-resident homeless vets may use, with approval and proper ID, laundry, shower and meal services.
