Creating a Feeling of Home Through Collaboration

Our Homes for All Veterans (HAV) program provides outreach, case management, and support accessing community and mainstream resources to more than 1,000 Veteran households each year who are experiencing literal homelessness or in danger of homelessness throughout the state of Colorado.
