VA Secretary Eric K. Shinseki and HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan at the National Forum on Ending Veterans Homelessness
Achieving targeted reductions in homelessness requires a collective effort focused on solutions. Opening Doors is a call for collective action. No level of government can or should do this alone. Success will require the collaboration and organization of federal, state, tribal, and local governments to execute these strategies effectively. Implementation requires leadership at all levels and partnerships between the public and the private sector, building on effective partnerships where they exist, and forging new partnerships where they are needed.
