Homeless Veterans Program

Goals of the Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) Program:

1.  Outreach:  to identify veterans among homeless persons encountered in shelters, soup kitchens,

      jails, prison and other community locations;

2.  Clinical assessments:  to determine the needs of each veteran seen by the team and to give priority

      to those who are most vulnerable;

3.  Referral: to medical and psychiatric inpatient and outpatient treatment and to social services and

     entitlement programs;

4.  Rehabilitation:  in community-based residential treatment facilities or other community housing, through

     any of the HCHV components, such as Grant and Per Diem, Supported Housing, HUDVASH, or CWT and CWT/TR; and

5.  Follow-up case management:  to help veterans identify resources which will facilitate their community re-entry.
