Ending Veteran Homelessness in our Communities
Ending Veteran homelessness in the Portland Area is a reality and the VAPORHCS Community Reintegration Services (CRS) team has and continues to be a key player in making it happen.
In December 2016, the Portland community was formally recognized by the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the VA for building coordinated access for Homeless Veterans and having a robust plan to effectively end Veteran Homelessness. Each month the Portland community has been housing more homeless Veterans than there have been Veterans entering into homelessness. Our work continues every day to meet the needs of our most vulnerable population of Veterans and to get them into permanent housing and access to the care they need. What it does mean is that the City of Portland, VAPORHCS, and multiple other partner agencies met the First Lady’s call to action through the Mayors Challenge that we accepted just two years ago. It means, based on multiple measurements, that these agencies are confident that the infrastructure and systems established locally ensures that any Veteran experiencing homelessness in Portland or Multnomah County can get the support they need to put the Veteran on a path to permanent housing.
