All the Way Home

Ending veteran homelessness in Santa Clara County

/ 150

"All the Way Home" is a community-focused campaign that aims to end veteran homelessness by 2017.

The City of San Jose, the County of Santa Clara, the Housing Authority of the County of Santa Clara and Destination: Home are collaborating to address this community crisis. We are partnering with our community's consortium of service providers including Veteran's Voices, Abode Services, United Way Silicon Valley, HomeFirst, Goodwill, Sunnyvale Community Services and others to ensure more housing resources are available for homeless veterans.

The Campaign is inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama's 2015 Mayors Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness. We are working with landlords and apartment owners to increase access to rental units for homeless veterans and their families. We're also outreaching to corporations and faith based groups to collaborate on strategies including land acquisition, housing development, access to rental units, financial assistance and veteran services.

Santa Clara County has one of the most expensive rental markets in the nation. With vacancy rates so low, we're relying on support from our community to work with us to match veterans with housing units, ensuring that we're able to bring them All The Way Home.
