Special efforts are made to contact veterans who may be incapable or reluctant to use the VA facilities. The CRS Program uses an Outreach van to meet veterans who face many challenges in making conventional access to services at the VA.
The PVAMC has a 35 bed lodging program located on the Vancouver Campus. This program is designed to assist case-managed veterans with transitional housing for up to 45 days. Access to the PVAMC Lodger Program is arranged through a clinical provider willing to provide case management during the TLC stay.
The CRS program works closely with a community provider to provide case management in local Portland Shelters. Veterans in need of emergency sheltered housing can apply for this program at the shelter located in downtown Portland.
The CRS program maintains 160+ veterans in case-managed housing. These programs are designed to provide various types of housing for veterans with chronic issues related to homelessness. Housing options range from group homes to independent apartment living.
