Communities across North Carolina are working toward the federal goal of ending homelessness among veterans. Two communities, Fayetteville/Cumberland County and Winston-Salem/Forsyth County, have both already met the benchmarks for ending Veteran homelessness established by the US Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH). Durham City & County met the benchmarks for ending Veteran chronic homelessness. 

Across all of these efforts, important lessons have emerged for communities working to end veteran homelessness. 

A Preliminary Report: Status of Veteran Homelessness in North Carolina was released on June 24, 2016.
