The Veterans Affairs Homeless Veterans Initiative was created to strengthen programs that prevent and end homelessness among veterans. VA provides a range of services to homeless veterans, including healthcare, housing, job training and education. There is a variety of reasons why veterans are homeless and VA is committed to providing solutions to put an end to this problem.
If you are a homeless Veteran or are at risk of becoming homeless and are in an area where there are no VA Homeless Staff in a nearby clinic, or are unsure of where to go for VA Homeless Programs, please call the VA’s National Call Center for Homeless Veterans: 1-877- 424-3838 (1-877-4AID-VET) or go to www.va.gov/HOMELESS.
The National Call Center for Homeless Veterans is available 24/7. Additionally, in most States you can dial 2-1-1 to reach your local Help Line. 2-1-1 provides free information and referral on community resources for food, housing, employment, health care, counseling and more.
