No Veteran should ever go homeless. 
 
The Department of Housing and Urban Development – VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Program is a joint effort between HUD and VA to move Veterans and their families out of homelessness and into permanent housing. HUD provides housing assistance through its Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) that allows homeless Veterans to rent privately owned housing. VA offers eligible homeless Veterans clinical and supportive services through its health care system across the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam. 
 
As of September 30, 2013, HUD had allocated funding to local public housing authorities to provide more than 58,000 Housing Choice Vouchers to homeless Veterans while VA hired dedicated VA case managers to assist homeless Veterans in securing and maintaining permanent housing through intensive case management. 
 
 Make the Call.You Fought for Our Home. We'll Fight for Yours. If you need housing assistance, call the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at 1-877-4AID-VET. 
 
When you call: You will be connected to a trained VA responder.The responder will ask a few questions to assess your needs.If you’re a Veteran, you may be connected with the Homeless Program point of contact at the nearest VA facility.Contact information will be requested so staff may follow up.
