"Those who have served this nation as Veterans should never find themselves on the streets, living without care and without hope."

Help End Homelessness Among Veterans
Make the Call: 877-4AID-VET
The Massachusetts Integrated Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness
The single best way to help Veterans who are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless is to connect them with VA. Each VA medical center has a homeless coordinator on staff and specific programs that provide Veterans the support they need to establish or maintain safe, stable housing. VA has also established the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans (877-4AID-VET, or 877-424-3838), a toll-free hotline available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Trained responders—many of them Veterans themselves—are available to provide support to Veterans and their loved ones who lack safe, secure housing. These services are also available on an online chat at va.gov/homeless.
