Because funds were not available for additional research personnel, clinicians were tasked with attempting to follow clients both during treatment and after they had dropped out of the HWVP. The difficulty of this challenge is reflected in the modest follow-up rates.

Subjects were recruited between January 2000 and December 2005 from the 11 VAMCs that implemented the specialized HWVPs. "Veterans were eligible for the study if their case manager determined that they were literally homeless, were at high risk of becoming homeless, had not received VA health services for more than 6 weeks at the time of program entry, had psychiatric and/or addiction problems, were cognitively able to complete the assessment interviews, were medically and psychiatrically stable, were interested in participating in available mental health services, and were willing to be interviewed quarterly during a 1-year follow-up period" [15].
