VAMC Tackles Homelessness

The Sheridan Veterans Affairs Medical Center is known around the region as a hub for psychiatric help, but part of that mission entails providing medical care and practical help for homeless vets as well. Deb Stevens, Housing Coordinator for Homeless Vets, says she works with several generations of war fighters.

According to studies from the Department of Defense, veterans are almost twice as likely to be homeless than non-veterans. Stevens said homelessness is often a biproduct of internal issues.

Stevens acknowledged sometimes the biggest obstacle is getting help isn't always logistical.
