What types of housing and health services are available to veterans?

Returning veterans who are experiencing homelessness can be connected to the Health Care for Homeless Veterans Program, a separate program administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). There is a coordinator for this program at each VA medical center who can assist veterans in accessing housing and supportive services. More information on these services is available here.

Veterans can also access health services at any health center. In fact, nearly 203,000 veterans received care at health centers in 2009, and about 10% of these veterans were seen at HCH projects.
