America's Call to Duty: Ending Veterans' Homelessness

This event has passed.

The U.S. has made great strides in reducing the number of Veterans who experience homelessness. As a result of the deployment of Housing First strategies, increased investment in Veteran-specific programs, and greater collaboration among federal, state and local governments, Veterans’ homelessness has declined by 50% since 2010. Unfortunately, on any given night, nearly 40,000 Veterans still experience homelessness—a fact that does not account for the economic dislocation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

As we approach Veterans Day, join BPC’s J. Ronald Terwilliger Center for Housing Policy for an important conversation about renewing the bipartisan commitment to end Veterans’ homelessness once and for all.
