Since 2009, homelessness among veterans has decreased by more than 17 percent. With two and a half years left to reach the Administration’s goal of ending homelessness among veterans by the end of 2015, this workshop will assess the progress that has been made and what further steps are needed to ensure we finish the job of housing our nation’s veterans. Presenters will evaluate lessons learned from efforts to end veteran homelessness and how they can be applied to other populations, lay out concrete steps communities can take to ensure they meet this goal, and discuss what roadblocks remain.
