The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has announced a concentrated 30-day effort by VA staff and partners to house as many homeless veterans in their communities as possible. VA's network of federal, local and nongovernmental partners will target available housing and supportive services to homeless veterans. The 30-day surge called Operation Reveille builds on the all-in, surge concept VA uses during its homeless stand downs. Find a list of when VA medical centers are holding stand downs online. For more information on how to help veterans in your community find permanent housing, read an overview here, and contact your local VA medical center.
