Continued Federal Investment Critical
On July 29, 2015, the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs held a hearing on the national push to end veteran homelessness.
During the hearing, Lisa Pape, executive director of homeless programs within the Veterans Health Administration at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), noted her agency’s commitment to Housing First and explained that VA homeless assistance programs have been critical to progress so far.
“Sustaining the gains made so far requires continued investments of financial resources. Failure to provide such resources will severely jeopardize our ability to sustain our progress and will put at risk thousands of veterans and their families in the future.”
