The VA is committed to ending homelessness.
The VA’s focus is threefold:
- Conducting coordinated outreach to proactively seek out Vets in need of assistance.
- Connecting homeless and at-risk Vets with housing solutions, health care, community employment services and other required supports.
- Collaborating with federal, state and local agencies; employers; housing providers, faith-based and community nonprofits; and others to expand employment and affordable housing options for Veterans exiting homelessness.
Vets experiencing homelessness can seek VA assistance. Here are three ways to take action:
- Vets who are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless can call or visit their local VA Medical Center or Community Resource and Referral Center where VA staff are ready to help.
- Vets and their families may also call 1-877-4AID-VET (1-877-424-3838) to access VA services.
