HUD and VA are happy to announce the release of The Department of Housing and Urban Development and Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Resource Guide for Permanent Housing and Clinical Care.
HUD-VASH’s goals are to place homeless Veterans in safe, stable, affordable, and, most importantly, permanent housing. Under the auspices of the program, HUD provides housing vouchers while the VA provides long-term case management, ensuring not only that Veterans receive the medical and counseling services they need but that they are able to sustain residence and avoid relapsing into homelessness.
The HUD-VASH Resource Guide was designed to provide case managers, social workers, treatment specialists, program managers, and other clinicians who work with homeless Veterans through the HUD-VASH program with a comprehensive set of resources. The guide includes a wide range of information such as useful tools, exercises, worksheets, and links to other homelessness resources and programs. The guide will help the HUD-VASH program more effectively address the multifaceted and complex housing, clinical, medical and psychosocial needs of homeless Veterans and their families.
The Guide is now available for use by the public and can be found here:
We hope that you find the information contained in the Resource Guide to be useful in your critical and important work with homelessness and hope that it will help to raise awareness of the HUD-VASH program.
