National Call Center for Homeless Veterans

Veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness—and their family members, friends and supporters—can make the call to or chat online with the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans, where trained counselors are ready to talk confidentially 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

VA Homeless Programs 

If you are a Veteran who is homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness, you can contact the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at (877) 4AID-VET (877-424-3838) for assistance.

Disability Housing Grants 

The VA offers housing grants for veterans and servicemembers with certain service-connected disabilities so they can buy or change a home to meet their needs and live more independently. Changing a home might involve installing ramps or widening doorways. Find out if you’re eligible for a disability housing grant—and how to apply.

Homeless Veteran Stand Downs 

Explore a calendar of upcoming Stand Downs. Stand Downs are typically one- to three-day events during which VA staff and volunteers provide food, clothing and health screenings to homeless and at-risk Veterans. In addition, Veterans also receive referrals for health care, housing solutions, employment, substance use treatment, mental health counseling and other essential services.

HUD-VASH Vouchers 

The HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program combines HUD’s Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance for homeless Veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). VA provides these services for participating Veterans at VA medical centers (VAMCs), community-based outreach clinics (CBOCs), through VA contractors, or through other VA designated entities.

Mortgage Delinquency Assistance 

If you fall behind on your mortgage payments, your mortgage servicer (the company that handles collecting the money for your lender) can take your house to cover the money owed. This process is called foreclosure. Find out how our VA loan technicians can help you avoid foreclosure and keep your house.

Transition and Care Management (OEF/OIF/OND) - Returning Service Members 

VA Liaison and Post-9/11 Military2VA (M2VA) Case Management programs to help bridge the gap between the DoD and VHA to support transitioning service members & Post-9/11 era Veterans. 

VR&E Independent Living Track 

If your service-connected disability limits your ability to perform activities of daily living (like bathing, dressing, accessing the community, and interacting with others) and you can’t return to work right away, you may qualify for independent living services through the Independent Living track. You may also receive these services as you work to find a job if that’s a goal you and your Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC) have created. In both cases, your VRC can help you restore your daily-living activities.
