New Homeless Vet Referal Policy in Huntington

Updated 11 weeks ago
The Huntington VAMC has begun a new partnership with the WV Veterans Home in Barboursville, to benefit homeless Veterans. The Veterans Home has opened 13 beds for transitional and emergency housing. This allows the VAMC to refer homeless Veterans to the Veterans Home for up to 60 days until permanent housing can be established either at the Veterans Home or in the community. Our Homeless Veterans Resource Center placed the first Veteran on January 21, 2014. With the recent severe weather, this partnership give us an important emergency housing option other than sending Veterans to a shelter.
