The VA's programs provide individualized, comprehensive care to Veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
The Tucson VA works along with the City of Tucson Mayor’s office, Housing and Urban Development and local homeless outreach agencies to identify homeless Veterans in the community and direct eligible homeless Veterans toward VA and local community resources to help them get off the streets. The Tucson VA is committed to providing eligible homeless Veterans with quality healthcare and services.
