If you are or know a veteran who is unhoused — or at risk of losing their home — there are resources available. Call 877-4AID-VET (877-424-3838) for free, confidential advice from trained VA counselors, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The VA has existing programs to help unhoused veterans, but this problem is far from solved. To help end the epidemic of veteran homelessness, contact your local congressional representative and tell them about the federal government’s promise to build and maintain permanent, supportive housing for disabled service members in the late-1800s — and the policies that have undermined that plan ever since.
