Education and Dissemination

The National Center on Homelessness among Veterans (The Center) in coordination with the Homeless Program Office followed evidence-based peer reviewed articles to purse the eight steps to develop its competency model for serving homeless Veterans. The development of population-based competencies for serving homeless populations is described in detail below and demonstrates progressive steps to ensure that these competencies are comprehensive.

The graphic below describes each of the seven domains in this model. Click on any of the domains to find training and education resources for each competency within that domain.
