Partnerships

hands holding illustrationThe Veterans Health Administration (VHA) recognizes that collaboration is essential between federal, state and local agencies, academic institutions, private health care providers, non-profits and others in our communities to effectively meet the needs of Veterans, their families, caregivers and survivors. These partnerships are especially critical when addressing Veteran homelessness. Through these partnerships we can leverage national and local resources to more efficiently meet the needs of our Veterans who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of homelessness.
