VA offers a variety of resources, programs and benefits to aid in this mission. Veterans are seen at the medical center, in legal and criminal justice system settings, or in the community. The Veteran’s needs are assessed and resources are provided directly through the VA or with community-based partners. Our programs were established to help the Veteran to prevent homelessness or to emerge from homelessness in order to live as self-sufficiently and independently as possible.
