"No Veteran should be living on the streets
without care and without hope."
— VA Secretary Eric K. Shinseki announcing a
five-year plan to end homelessness among Veterans
The Department of Veterans Affairs believes that no Veteran should ever be homeless. To meet this goal, the Jack C. Montgomery VAMC conducts outreach to local shelters, soup kitchens and other areas where homeless Veterans may be located, and provides health care and supportive services to homeless Veterans or Veterans at risk of becoming homeless.
We offer a wide range of resources, including transitional and permanent housing, case management, compensated work therapy and supported employment, dental and medical care and other supportive services, that aim to meet you where you are — and guide you to where you want to be.
Veterans are engaged in treatment programs that enable them to develop skills to live independently and achieve a better quality of life. When you enter our programs, our specially trained staff will guide you through each step, providing personalized case management that caters to your needs.
