This program provides accommodation and support for homeless contemporary veterans
Andrew Russell Veteran Living (ARVL) is named after Sergeant Andrew Russell. Sergeant Russell was a South Australian soldier with the Australian Army who was killed in Afghanistan in February 2002 when the long range patrol vehicle he was travelling in struck a suspected anti-vehicle mine.
The aim of Andrew Russell Veteran Living is to ensure that every ex-service person in SA who is homeless or at risk of homelessness has the opportunity to access appropriate and affordable housing solutions, and provide practical supports that enable veterans to generate positive accommodation outcomes for themselves.
ARVL partners with a range of providers to expand services and support offerings to encourage residents to make connections and pathways necessary to access individualised wrap around services they may need.
