Description

This webinar will cover best practices for serving Veterans experiencing chronic homelessness through partnerships established by VAMCs and PHAs with community organizations. HUD, VA and USICH have found that including local Continuums of Care (CoCs) as key partners in the implementation of HUD-VASH has been extremely important for VAMCs and PHAs that are quickly and stably housing chronically homeless Veterans. Speakers presenting during the webinar include experts on chronic homelessness and CoC programs. In addition, representatives from three HUD-VASH sites will discuss how they have effectively partnered with CoCs and homeless service providers in order to better serve the most vulnerable Veterans and to ultimately end Veteran homelessness in their communities.
