Caring for Homeless Veterans

1 min read

In 1990, Monte Daugharty joined the Navy. When he returned home, he struggled to come to terms with his experiences on deployment and turned to the VA for support. There, he found camaraderie, connection and a future. After getting back on his feet, he stayed with the VA to help battle veteran homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The VA’s care, treatment and rehabilitation service program offers free shelter and services to any veteran in need. It works by identifying homeless vets on the streets and offering them transitional housing that they can access immediately.

So far, 850,000 veterans and their families have been permanently housed with help from the VHA, and homelessness in vets has declined 50% since 2010.

Watch the video above to hear Monte’s touching story and learn more about the VA’s latest initiatives against homelessness.
