How to Help Homeless Veterans

Check out the “How to Help Homeless Veterans” video to learn how you can help Veterans who are at-risk or experiencing homelessness in your community. Discover the steps you can take to make a difference in the lives of those who served our country. You’ll also hear from formerly homeless Veterans about their positive experiences with VA as they exited homelessness.

No Veteran Should Be Without a Place to Call Home

VA is committed to ending homelessness among Veterans. Our focus is threefold:

  • Conducting coordinated outreach to proactively seek out Veterans in need of assistance.
  • Connecting homeless and at-risk Veterans 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.
