We have the drive to finish our mission of ending veteran homelessness

Earlier this week, the New York Times Editorial board released a response to the effort to end veteran homelessness in this country claiming that the results of the work to cut homelessness among veterans almost in half since 2010 reflects “shrunken ambition and mission failure.”We disagree. There is a difference between mission failure and a mission taking longer than originally anticipated. And the ambition is there to continue working until we meet that goal.

The role of rapid re-housing in ending veteran homelessness

Over the past year, communities across the country have declared an end to veteran homelessness. These communities, which range from small rural areas to large cities, have demonstrated that with the right resources, interventions, and federal and community supports, it is possible to accomplish this goal.
