Ending Veteran Homelessness Initiative Community Team
The Community Team is responsible for helping to shape the implementation of Chicago's Coordinated Entry System (CES), as well as to address systemic barriers identified by providers and Veterans that prevent Veterans from getting housed quickly and efficiently. Systemic barriers experienced by staff participating in the EVHI SIT meetings are brought to the Community Team for discussion and possible resolution. 
Expertise needed: The EVHI Community Team is comprised of program management/leadership staff from the VA, emergency shelters, transitional housing, outreach, and all housing providers that serve Veterans. 
Meeting details: The EVHI Community Team meets on the first Friday of each month from 9 -11a.m. at DFSS, 10 S. Kedzie, Room 205. Please contact Jessica Smith at CSH at if interested in attending.
