Julie, a Veteran, was externally referred to our Veteran Outreach Program to receive services. She was without stable housing. In response, our Veteran Outreach Specialist worked quickly to assess Julie’s immediate and intermediate needs. By the end of that single intake session, Julie was registered for an E-Benefits account, which permitted her to possess a Service Letter and use the Proof of Service card. Julia was also registered for Military Sexual Trauma counseling and later placed in the Hammond Home Shelter. She is currently seeking stable housing through the Homeless Management Information Center’s Coordinated Entry for All.
