No one who has served our country should ever go without a safe, stable place to call home. All too frequently veterans are unable to prevent entering into the County's homeless population. Maricopa County's Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) is integral to providing services, including transitional and permanent housing services, for homeless individuals and families, including veterans, throughout our community.
The HCH delivers quality health care to homeless people through street outreach, integrated primary care, mental health services, substance abuse services, case management, employment assistance, nutrition services and emergency, transitional and permanent housing services. HCH's collaborative efforts focus on meeting these needs in an effective and efficient manner, and centralizing key services.
In another community collaboration, Maricopa County Public Health and Human Services works in conjunction with many different partners on Project H3 Vets, which is a community initiative coordinated by the Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness. The initiative, which seeks to end chronic homelessness among veterans, is aligned nationally with the 100,000 Homes Campaign and the VA National Homeless Veterans Outreach Campaign.
