The NCHV, which includes the DAV, unites public and private agencies in support of the effort to educate and share experiences in dealing with homeless veterans and the government programs designed to help them.
history, the nation has a comprehensive, multi-agency strategy to end and prevent homelessness," said NCHV president and CEO John Driscoll.
In the week following the NCHV conference, HUD was providing $5.4 million to local public housing authorities in 18 states for permanent housing and case management for 676 homeless veterans under the HUD-VA Supportive Housing Program.
"Here at the National Coalition," says Boone, "that expertise was coupled with my passion for the mission; I've been working on veterans' issues since 1968 when I married a Vietnam veteran." Boone first served as a member of the board of directors for NCHV and then decided to apply her professional modus operandi to the organization, which was $250,000 in debt, suffering from bad publicity, and needing to rebuild some soured relationships.
When I first came to NCHV, we had no money and few members.
I look forward to continuing my close partnership with NCHV and organizations like U.S.VETS in Hawaii as we work together toward ending veteran homelessness in our state and across the country.
In 2016, NCHV also honored Senator Hirono with their 2016 Public Policy Award which goes to an elected official who has taken on a leadership role in creating or changing policies to support efforts to end veteran homelessness.
