Article: “Pushing to the Goal: 3 Ways to Accelerate Ending Veteran Homelessness”
During the April 16 meeting of USICH, federal agencies, together with the White House's Domestic Policy Council and the Office of Management and Budget, reviewed progress towards ending Veterans homelessness, recognizing that even with the progress to date, efforts must be accelerated to meet the goal of ending Veterans homelessness by 2015. Ending Veterans homelessness remains possible with the right investments focused in the right way. An article on USICH’s website describes three important ways to accelerate progress: faster connections to permanent housing, identifying and meeting the needs of every Veteran, and stronger bridges to mainstream efforts.

Upcoming Webinar: "Opening Doors to Innovation: Improving Client Outcomes Using Housing First”
Wednesday, May 8th, at 1:00 pm EDT
Join USICH and the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans to discuss how Housing First practices can improve client outcomes in a transitional housing setting and help our Nation's Veterans and others who experience homelessness move more quickly into permanent housing.
Participate in a conversation with Dr. Josh Bamberger from the San Francisco Department of Health and Dr. Tom O'Toole from Veterans Affairs Medical Center Providence, RI on the clinical dimensions of Housing First and how it can help to deliver improved care to clients and speed up their transitions into permanent housing.
On this webinar you'll learn more about Housing First as a clinical practice from healthcare providers in both community and VA-based settings. You'll also hear from a local transitional housing provider for Veterans who innovated their program with Housing First principles to enhance the success housing Veterans experiencing homelessness.
