Master Plan 2022 Initiative to Transform The VA Into Supportive Community
The VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System (VAGLAHS) remains steadfast in its commitment to eradicating Veteran homelessness. At the core of this mission is Master Plan 2022, an initiative outlining the transformation of the 388-acre West LA VA Medical Center into a comprehensive and supportive community, featuring a minimum of 1,200 units of permanent supportive housing.
Facilitating this transition is VAGLAHS’ Community Engagement and Reintegration Service (CERS), linking Veterans to permanent supportive housing within the West LA VA and extending throughout the broader Greater Los Angeles area.
CERS offers a spectrum of services, including emergency and transitional shelter, employment opportunities, health care, and justice and reentry-related support, benefiting approximately 16,000 Veterans annually.
You can view the VA’s latest drone video on YouTube that showcases the ongoing efforts of the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System to establish affordable, permanent-supportive housing for chronically homeless Veterans and those vulnerable to homelessness. Focusing on two developments at the West LA VA Medical Center’s north campus, slated for completion in 2024, these projects will contribute 192 units of housing for Veterans in need.
