The Birmingham VA Health Care System and community partners are being recognized for achievements in the successful permanent housing placement of 227 Veterans in 2022.
The initial goal for the Birmingham VA was to place 190 homeless Veterans into housing. The placement of 227 homeless Veterans represents over 119% of the targeted goal.
Last year VA established a goal to house 38,000 homeless Veterans nationally. In December 2022, VA exceeded the goal by over 6% by housing over 40,000 Veterans — an overall decrease of 11% of Veterans experiencing homelessness. The Birmingham VA Health Care System was instrumental in ensuring any Veteran experiencing homelessness has access to permanent housing as quickly as possible.
