Working with Community Partners Ending Veteran homelessness will be achieved through collaboration and partnerships at every level of
government and with the private sector. Strategically leveraging the resources and skills within a community will help stretch resources and improve program outcomes. In communities across the country, VAMCs and community service providers are collaborating to identify and engage Veterans experiencing homelessness for HUD-VASH referrals. In selected communities, VA and USICH have encouraged VAMCs to contract with community-based providers to improve targeting to Veterans experiencing chronic homelessness. The use of nonprofit service providers to provide case management and wraparound services is an adaptation of the HUD-VASH program that VA is currently exploring.
