Veterans Master List

ECHO has obtained a Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) grant.  Although the VA started a program in 2010 to end veteran homelessness in five years, there are still homeless veterans in most parts of the country in 2017.  ECHO has joined the challenge to end veteran homelessness within our 12 counties.  This grant greatly assists in that act.  As part of this effort, we have implemented a Veteran By Name List that has helped other communities to identify and quickly serve veterans experiencing homelessness.

The plan is to have monthly team meetings with community agencies to identify veterans experiencing homelessness, plus link veterans with housing, and services. These meetings will include updating the Veteran By Name List, and identifying resources to assist the Veterans to reach housing.  We are piloting this concept in Horry County, and we will quickly add other communities in 2018. Any providers including non-Horry county agencies are welcome to attend!
