Veterans Homelessness

Veterans Committee. The veterans committee is comprised of coalition homeless veteran provider agencies working together to address veteran-specific housing needs throughout the state. A primary focus of the committee is to end veterans homelessness as part of a national federal initiative involving three federal partners; Health and Humans Services (HUD), United States Interagency Council on Homeless (USICH), and the Veterans Health Administration (VHA).

The Committee has bi-weekly calls to assess and improve upon the homeless assistance system in Vermont and do case conferencing.

Contact Jim Bastien, Chair of the Veterans Committee for more information.

The mission of the Coalition is to end homelessness in Vermont through sharing information, developing resources, providing a forum for decision-making and to promote decent, safe, fair, affordable shelter for all.
