SAMHSA Veteran Homelessness Panel - Guiding Principles and Strategies

In August 2011, USICH, SAMHSA, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation at HHS, and the Departments of Veterans Affairs, Housing and Urban Development, and Defense sponsored an expert panel and discussion on what is known about how to prevent and end homelessness among Veterans. The panel documented research-based knowledge, field experience, and best practices in meeting the needs of Veterans returning from recent wars. USICH created this fact sheet in partnership with SAMHSA with 12 guiding principles for successful programs for Veterans and how best to implement them.
