The Suffolk County United Veterans Project, Inc. (SCUVP) was founded in 1989 to assist homeless veterans regain their dignity and independence. Residents are former members of the military who struggle with the problems of substance abuse and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and who have not been able to succeed in any alternate form of treatment.

If its good for the vet…do it!

The Suffolk County United Veterans Project, Inc. (SCUVP) was started in 1989 when two veterans discovered an old Army buddy living in a dumpster behind a fast-food outlet. Some research revealed that many veterans had fallen through the safety net and were living in similar fashion.

Our veterans come from all the different communities, ethnicities, and backgrounds of America. They share a love for our nation and willingness to risk their lives for it.  Unfortunately, after their tour of duty, they re-enter civilian life carrying emotional and psychological scars. Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), emotional dislocation, alcoholism and substance abuse, make transition to civilian  life difficult for even the most determined veterans. After a series of setbacks, all too many find themselves homeless, marginalized, and addicted.

Breaking the Cycle…

The Suffolk County United Veterans Project, Inc. endevors to break the cycle of homelessness by giving the veteran the tools he needs to stabilize his housing, increase his income and gain greater self-determination.

There are several SCUVP sites in Suffolk County. Our facilities house up to 60 men. All veterans share in the cooking and cleaning. Veterans seeking help are never turned away. In essence, we are a self-managed, self-governing community of vets who draw on their common experiences and help each other remain sober and rejoin society.

In the past, we have successfully provided vets with three levels of housing (emergency, transitional and permanent) congruent with the individual veterans progression through levels of recovery. Secondly, we have helped veterans empower themselves by being a nexus of services, information and referral to community resources. Through informed empowerment and advocacy, vets are beginning to hold themselves and service providers accountable for change.

Suffolk County United Veterans Project, Inc.’s goals are simple. We provide veterans with continuous housing and support through all levels of recovery; we empower vetrans with information and support; and we serve as an advocate for program changes that will benefit the veteran.

Remembering one of our founders….

In December 2009, we lost a friend, a sister, simply put,… a beautiful soul.

Helene was an angel sent to us and although her time with us was short, she touched the lives of all those she met. It was her commitment to “The Gift of Giving” that she helped establish The NJ-NYVFA Scholarship Awards.

This year, in her memory, the NJ-NY Volunteer Firemen Association Convention presented Helene’s mother Shirley and her brother Marc with the 1st Annual Helene D. Field Memorial Scholarship Award.

This year’s recipient was Alfred Gerber of Little Ferry NJ studying Administrative Science. Congratulations Alfred and make us all proud. Helene, we miss you dearly.

H&M Stands Up Against Heroin!!

Mangano & NCPD Host Stand Up Against Heroin Event & Press Conference

Nassau County Executive Ed Managano and the Nassau County Police Department hosted a “Nassau’s Stand Up Against Heroin Community Event” on Friday May 14th at the Manor East located at 201 Jerusalem Avenue in Massapequa. The event began with a press conference  to acknowledge the collaborative effort in the fight against heroin.

Attendees included representatives of the business community, the drug treatment community, law enforcement, government, Latino African American Chaplains Association (LACA), parents and students. Some of our sponsors included: Sprint, Little Debbie, Manor East Family and H & M Leasing Corp.

“Let this send a clear message to the people of Nassau County,” said County Executive Mangano. “As a community we are standing up and saying no to heroin use, sale and/or distribution in our great county. We hope to collectively end this epidemic that is destroying the lives of many of our residents.”

“We are seeing a lot of Straight-A students and athletes that are heroin users,” said Nassau County Police Commissioner Lawrence Mulvey. “In almost all cases parents do not suspect their kid is a heroin user because they are doing well in school or they are involved in athletics. By the time parents become aware that there is a problem it is too late, their kids are hooked. Heroin is cheap, dangerous and more addictive than ever.”

“Going forward the Parental Awareness Ads will be posted and distributed by many Nassau businesses thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and will be placed on many clothing bins owned by H&M Leasing Corp.,” said County Executive Mangano. “We are determined to get the message out there so that it will start a conversation between parents and their kids. As parents we are the first line of defense in protecting our children.”

The Parental Awareness Ad Campaign was created by Ann Lucido and Bob Schmitt of Lucido, Koulian and Schmitt Advertising, the Nassau County Police Department, and Jeff Reynolds of LICADD. The ad campaign was created to help get the attention of parents, especially parents of teenagers and young adults who think they are immune to being effected by the heroin epidemic.

The Parental Awareness Ad Campaign is just one part of the County’s three pronged approach to combating the heroin epidemic. From an enforcement perspective there is Operation H.A.L.T. (Heroin Abuse Location & Targeting), that targets heroin users traveling in and out of the county to purchase heroin. In addition, there is an education proponent, which is the “Too Good for Drugs Program” that is being implemented here in Nassau County. “Too Good for Drugs” is a school based prevention program for kindergarten through 12th grade that has been very successful throughout the United States.
