2020-21 VA End Veteran Homelessness Challenge
Since 2018, NAESP, ASCA, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Homeless Programs Office have partnered to organize the End Veteran Homelessness Challenge, a program that allows student councils and their schools to coordinate fundraising and donation activities with their local VA centers.
The 2020-21 challenge, which typically takes place in the fall, won’t look quite the same this year due to ongoing COVID-19 precautions. In lieu of having students make donations through their schools and compete to be the school to contribute the most, students are now able to donate directly to their local VA centers, continuing the mission of helping homeless veterans obtain affordable housing and everyday household essentials.
Even though we are unable to host the challenge this year, we hope that students will still be in the spirit of participation and continue to raise funds and/or donate to their local VA Homelessness Program.
