A new VA program is sending teams of health care providers into the streets to find and help an invisible army of sick, discouraged Veterans who spend their nights under bridges, on park benches, or on the sidewalk. The technical term for this growing movement within the Department of Veterans Affairs is �H-PACT,' which stands for Homeless Patient Aligned Care Teams. Currently VA has 31 of these teams across the country that are providing health care and other services to over 5,000 homeless Veterans... And counting.
