Veza translates to bond, connection, link. Support staff works with residents to ensure a strong sense of connectedness in the Veza Living community as well as the larger community to help residents get the most out of their stay.

Volunteerism is another big part of the Veza Living experience, our residents give back to society by helping those in need. We also offer in house SMART recovery meetings twice a week to support residents in their recovery journey.
