Conference Presentation | July 23, 2012
Files: Homeless Veterans Outreach Program Benefits Assistance Service by Allison Calabro (PDF | 773 KB | 11 slides)
Veteran benefits are often overlooked as a key piece for maintaining housing and self-sufficiency. The Veterans Benefit Administration is an important partner in helping veterans file for and obtain a wide variety of benefits, including: medical care, homeless assistance, service-connected disability payments, and veterans’ pensions. By combining these veteran-specific income sources and benefits with mainstream resources targeted to low-income families and individuals,veterans can be lifted out of homelessness or avoid it entirely.
