The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV) — a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization— is the resource and technical assistance center for a national network of community-based service providers and local, state and federal agencies that provide emergency and supportive housing, food, health services, job training and placement assistance, legal aid and case management support for hundreds of thousands of homeless veterans each year.
NCHV also serves as the primary liaison between the nation’s care providers, Congress and the executive branch agencies charged with helping them succeed in their work. Our successes include strengthening and increasing funding for virtually every federal homeless veteran assistance program in existence today. We enhance the work of service providers across the country through direct trainings on how best to integrate employment assistance into their housing programs. Our success is best defined by the nearly 50 percent decrease in veterans experiencing homelessness in this country since 2010. However; work remains to ensure that the nearly 38,000 veterans experiencing homelessness on a given night this year get connected to housing and the assistance they need.
