Homeless Veterans Program at McGuire VAMC
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is taking decisive action to end Veteran homelessness in five years. All Veterans at risk for homelessness or attempting to exit homelessness must have easy access to programs and services. VA offers a variety of resources, programs and benefits to aid in this mission.
This mission of the National Center on Homelessness among Veterans is to promote recovery-oriented care for Veterans who are homeless or at risk for homelessness. The Center is a national resource that informs practices designed to meet the VA’s Five Year Plan to End Homelessness among Veterans.
