Description of Service
The United States Department of Veterans Affairs is committed to ending Veteran homelessness by the end of 2015. No one who has served our country should ever go without a safe, stable place to call home.
The entire department has put its energy and resources into ending Veteran homelessness. VA's programs provide individualized, comprehensive care to Veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
Our Veterans return from service with wounds we cannot always see. VA is committed to providing our Veterans with the mental health services they deserve. Too often, the emotional scars of service can contribute to Veteran homelessness or place Veterans at risk of homelessness. VA offers many mental health services for Veterans to help them get back on their feet.
VA provides a variety of programs and services that Veterans can take advantage of, including:
Domiciliary Care for Homeless Veterans (DCHV) Program Domiciliary care was initially established to provide services to economically-disadvantaged Veterans, and it remains committed to serving that group. The Domiciliary has evolved from a "Soldiers' Home" to become an active clinical rehabilitation and treatment program for male and female Veterans and domiciliary programs are now integrated with the Mental Health Residential Rehabilitation and Treatment Programs (MH RRTPs).
