We Are A Proud Partner In The Fight To End Veteran Homelessness

We are a proud partner in the fight to end Veteran homelessness

Veterans are proven leaders. But they’re also human. Veterans can face money problems and mental health challenges, or retreat from family and friends as they adjust to civilian life. Don’t ignore the hardships that could jeopardize the health, livelihood, or homes of Veterans you know. VA has  allocated unprecedented resources for ending Veteran homelessness. For Veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, VA is here to help. Make the Call to 877-4AID-VET (877-424-3838) or chat online at va.gov/homeless to help Veterans access the services they have earned.

There is no “typical” Veteran. Your oldest buddy, the store clerk, the woman playing with her children at the park— they all may be Veterans at risk of homelessness. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is committed to ending Veteran homelessness by the end of 2015. VA is able to do this because it provides a wide range of services to eligible Veterans who are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless, including:

  • Health care
  • Safe housing and temporary rental assistance
  • Job training and financial counseling
  • Help paying for child care or moving expenses
  • Foreclosure avoidance through guaranteed loans

These resources—and others provided by local agencies— have already helped thousands of Veterans. We are here to make sure that those who served our country get the help they need. But no one can end homelessness alone. Ask anyone you encounter who is experiencing homelessness if
he or she is a Veteran. Free support is available 24/7 from the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at 877-4AID-VET. You can also visit the Homeless Veterans Download Center to access printable brochures, posters, and Web banners that can help you raise awareness in our community at
va.gov/homeless/resource_center.asp
