The VA’s CHCs (Comprehensive Homeless Centers) provide a variety of VA homeless initiatives at a single medical center area and provide administration within a centralized framework. With broad partnerships by non-VA providers, VA’s Comprehensive Homeless Centers in Ohio, Alaska, Texas, New York, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, and California provide care that reaches out to homeless ex-soldiers and aids them to avoid being displaced, using different treatment programs. Readjustment Counseling Service’s Vet Centers also give out psychological counseling, referrals, and outreach to other VA and community initiatives. Each Vet center has a homeless ex-soldier coordinator who will ensure the displaced veterans’ needs are met.

A National Call Center for the displaced veterans was established by the Department of VA, to make sure that the homeless ex-soldiers, who are at-risk, have a toll-free line to contact a trained counselor at any time. The call center aims to assist affected veterans, including their families, VA medical centers, community, federal, local partner, state agencies and others in the community. To get in touch with a VA trained member use: 877-4AID VET (877-424-3838).

Excess Property for Homeless Veterans

This is a program that works for the distribution of personal property, including socks, footwear, parkas, hats and other things to the homeless ex-soldiers, via the VA domiciliary and other programs. It is responsible for the distribution of materials worth 125 USD million and currently has more than 15 USD in inventory. The program uses formerly rehabilitated homeless ex-soldiers to distribute the goods to others in need.
