Greetings from VA Connecticut!
As many are aware, we are in the last year of VA's Five Year Plan to EndVeteran Homelessness. The Homeless Team at VA Connecticut has been working diligently to outreach and engage Veterans who are homeless in order toprovide them with services and housing resources.
While we have been working hard towards our goal of ending chronic Veteran homelessness, weknow that we cannot do the work with the help of our community partners. Tot hat end, I wanted to take a moment to send out this message and ask foryour assistance in getting the word out on how to access assistance for Veterans who may be homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
Our team is ready to assist where we can to meet the needs of Veterans. Attached you will find a Veteran Housing Resource Sheet which provides information on accessing Veteran housing resources in Connecticut. You are welcome toshare this liberally in any way that you can. Your assistance is crucial tous reaching any and all Veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in the coming months.
The VA Connecticut Homeless Team can be reached 8:00am-4:30pm, Monday-Fridayat 203.479.8064. The National Veterans Homeless Hotline can be reached 24/7, at1.877.424.3838. Veterans using this resource are then referred to VA Connecticut Homeless Team for assistance.
Thank you for assisting us with these efforts. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
