Hiring Event in Response to National Shortage of HUD-Vash Social Workers

According to a recent article published by The American Legion, the veteran homeless rate has dropped to a 10-year low. Yet, thousands of federal vouchers that could help get more veterans off the streets went unused.

“There are so many unused vouchers and so many homeless veterans remaining,” Keith Harris, the national director of clinical operations for Veterans Health Administration, said Tuesday during a House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs hearing on veteran homelessness.

Harris asserts that “one critical strategy [to ending veteran homelessness] is increasing the number of case managers. Along with the lack of affordable housing, the lack of case workers is unquestionably the great limiting factors in voucher utilization.”

This shortage of case managers and social workers is being felt locally and across the nation. To combat this shortage, there is a local informational MI HUD-VASH Social Worker hiring event which is open to the public.

While attending the event, learn about job opportunities, how to apply for jobs and network with Human Resources Representatives from VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System.

This hiring event will take place on February 11 from 10:00am – 11:30am at Toledo VA Outpatient Clinic Conference Room 2-216, 1200 S Detroit Ave, Toledo, OH
