VA Homeless Programs


Promising Practices

The VHA Homeless Programs Office established a workgroup to examine innovative and promising practices to help VA staff and partner organizations accelerate progress in reducing homelessness among Veterans. These practices cover a wide range of topics related to Veteran homelessness. Through a peer review process, workgroup members will select practices that they believe are worthy of sharing with others in the community of practice. White papers about these practices will be published here to inform VA staff, partners, and others of innovative ways to improve outcomes for Veterans who lack stable housing.

New white papers will be added to this webpage regularly so check back often.

Disclaimer: The VHA Homeless Programs Office fully endorses the COVID-19 Strong Practices highlighted here. Readers should be aware that, due to the need for rapid dissemination, these practices underwent an accelerated vetting process that differed from the standard white paper peer review. This accelerated process prioritized ensuring that the practices were consistent with the most recent VA and Centers for Disease Control guidance on COVID-19.
