The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV) is delighted to unveil its latest report, The Housing Needs of Aging Veterans.” This comprehensive study represents the culmination of a year-long project aimed at gaining profound insights into the current landscape, identifying barriers, exploring innovative practices, and charting a course forward to better serve our aging veterans.

The research process involved a multifaceted approach, including a thorough literature review, interviews with key stakeholders, a survey of veteran service providers, and facilitated focus groups with both veterans and service providers. This holistic methodology allowed NCHV to gather diverse perspectives and compile a robust understanding of the challenges and opportunities in meeting the housing needs of aging veterans.

The report delves into key themes, promising practices, and recommendations derived from the collected data. It sheds light on the nuanced issues that aging veterans face in securing stable housing, providing valuable insights to inform future initiatives and policies. The findings are a testament to the dedication and collaborative efforts invested by NCHV in addressing this critical issue.
