Homelessness Response and  Housing System


Corporate and Philanthropic Partners

Ending homelessness among Veterans cannot be accomplished by federal partners alone, but will require the partnership and commitment of each community’s homelessness response and housing system, including Veteran Service Organizations, community-based providers, faith-based organizations, public housing agencies, affordable housing operators, and many more.


Corporate and philanthropic partners can play an important role in rounding out the array of housing, services, and jobs available to Veterans experiencing homelessness.
