Use of group treatment among case managers in Department of Veterans Affairs supported housing program

Jack Tsai, PhD; Robert A. Rosenheck, MD

The Department of Housing and Urban Development- Department of Veterans Affairs Supported Housing (HUD-VASH) program provides homeless veterans with a housing voucher and intensive case management. However, the use of group treatment in HUD-VASH has not been examined. This study examined national HUD-VASH data and found that HUD-VASH programs that offered groups more often had more contacts with their clients. Furthermore, an online survey of HUD-VASH case managers in the New England area found most case managers reported groups could be helpful for their clients. The results of this study suggest that group treatment in HUD-VASH has the potential to improve care for homeless veterans and should be further studied.
