About Bedford Veterans Quarters

How You Can Help | How to Apply

Caritas Communities has over 20 years of experience creating and managing single room occupancy (SRO) housing.  In 2006 we created Bedford Veterans quarters (BVQ) and began renovating a vacant building on the Bedford Veterans Hospital campus.

Completed in the summer of 2007, 60 homeless veterans now call BVQ their home.  With on-site access to supportive services, BVQ is a major step towards self-sufficiency.

Each resident has his/her own room and shares communal areas:  3 kitchens and baths, lounges, laundry rooms, patio and full use of the attractive Bedford campus.

Bedford Veterans Housing –
A program for success:

  • • BVQ has Federal rental subsidy (Section 8) that guarantees affordable rents for all residents. 
  • • BVQ is managed under Caritas Communities’ professional property management program, including a live-in manager and on-site case management services.
  • • Residents have full use of existing services at the Bedford campus, including medical care, recreational facilities and counseling.
