Homeless Veterans

​​​​​​​​​

​​
KDVA Homeless Veterans Program is a proven, successful program that gets homeless veterans off the streets and provides assistance to those at imminent risk of homelessness by connecting them with resources across the state. Resources include but are not limited to:
Immediate needs - food, clothing, access to shelter
access to homeless veteran providers 
assistance with Rent and Utilities

A veteran's first connection should be with the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at (877) 4AID-VET (877-424-3838) for assistance. If Veterans do not have access to a phone or the internet, only then can they visit their closest VA medical center without calling in advance.  For more information on VA's fight for homelessness, please visit their website.
