A Community-Based HUD-VASH Initiative to End Chronic Homelessness Among Veterans

Our Current State: Ending Chronic Veteran Homelessness:  Ending homelessness is possible. It does not mean that no one will ever experience homelessness again. It means that when an individual or family has a housing crisis, our community has the systems and resources in place to immediately identify and support them in rapidly getting back into housing. Instances of homelessness should be rare, short-lived and non-recurring. 



While people experiencing homelessness absolutely struggle with poverty, domestic violence, chronic health conditions, mental health issues, and substance use, the primary reason that people become and remain homeless is their lack of safe and stable housing that they can afford.  Affordable housing is scarce in our communities.  The need far exceeds the supply, especially for those individuals and families with extremely low incomes.  

But there is a solution!  The Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness and the Arizona Housing Alliance are advocating for the restoration of the state housing trust fund.  Created in 1988, the State Housing Trust Fund is a state resource devoted to addressing Arizona's housing needs.  Read more and endorse our efforts...
