Beyond VASH: Ending Veteran Homelessness

Veteran homelessness declined by 12% between 2010 and 2011. In order to build on this momentum and achieve the goal of ending Veteran homelessness by 2015, USICH is calling on communities to develop a Veteran-centric approach that uses all the available resources to help our Veterans. USICH hosted a webinar to share advice from successful efforts on how to develop a comprehensive approach that effectively brings the resources available to Veterans in need to improve housing and life outcomes. VAMC programs, lessons learned on funding streams and plans for Veteran-specific programs in communities, and working with a program like 100,000 Homes are discussed by the esteemed panel. 

Panelists include: 

USICH Executive Director Barbara Poppe
Veterans Health Administration’s National Director of Homeless Programs Lisa Pape
Director of the King County Committee to End Homelessness Bill Block
Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness’ Executive Director Joan Serviss
