Hillsborough County Homeless Veterans:

VA offers a wide array of special programs and initiatives specifically designed to help homeless veterans live as self-sufficiently and independently as possible. In fact,VA is the only Federal agency that provides substantial hands-on assistance directly to homeless persons.

VA's specialized homeless veterans treatment programs have grown and developed since they were first authorized in 1987. The programs strive to offer a continuum of services that include:

  • aggressive outreach to those veterans living on streets and in shelters who otherwise would not seek assistance;
  • clinical assessment and referral to needed medical treatment for physical and psychiatric disorders, including substance abuse;
  • long-term sheltered transitional assistance, case management, and rehabilitation;
  • employment assistance and linkage with available income supports; and
  • supported permanent housing.
