Veterans who are homeless and want to return to the workforce often face obstacles such as a lack of transportation, lack of permanent housing, lack of proper work attire and/or tools, or involvement with the justice system. Partnerships with organizations that can provide needed services are an effective way to improve employment and training outcomes for veterans served by HVRP grantees.
HVRP grantees seek partnerships with public and private partners that provide housing, healthcare, food assistance, childcare, and other support services.
Forming Partnerships Between HVRPs and Community Partners
Organizations that serve veterans experiencing homelessness can’t “go it alone.” Every organization requires partnerships to meet the various needs of the veterans they serve. HVRP grantees in communities across the nation stand ready to work together in service to those who have served.
