The Robley Rex VA Medical Center in Louisville, KY is hosting a Homeless Veterans Summit on Monday, November 7th from 1:00pm to 3:30pm at Metro United Way 334 E. Broadway (Community Room, Second Floor).  The Summit will serve as a vehicle to synchronize VA and non-VA partner plans to end homelessness among Veterans.

"We hope to establish measurable goals and objectives to align our efforts with our non-VA partners," said Todd Dedas, VA Health Care for Homeless Veterans Coordinator. 

As a result of a National Forum on Ending Homelessness Among Veterans, hosted by the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington D.C., several outcomes were identified to address homelessness among Veterans:

  • Mitigate VA access barriers for at-risk and homeless Veterans.
  • Reduction in the number of homeless Veterans in certain geographic areas.
  • Increase of homeless Veterans outreach contact by 10 percent.
  • Implementation and expansion of crisis response assistance services for at-risk and homeless Veterans.
  • Implementation and expansion of discharge planning and referral services for at-risk and homeless Veterans.
  • Implementation and expansion of 24/7 crisis response and housing assistance for all referred homeless Veterans.
