The Department of Veterans Affairs is the only Federal agency that provides substantial hands-on assistance directly to homeless persons. With more than 154,000 homeless Veterans in the United States on any given night, that mission is considered essential for VA as they strive to eliminate homelessness amongst those who have served our nation. In Charleston, the VA has an active Homeless Veterans program that provides health care, shelter, case management, rehabilitation and employment assistance to more than 100 Veterans each day.
