The West Texas VA Health Care System (WTVAHCS) strives to work with community partners and other government agencies throughout the area to provide services to Veterans and their families.  The Housing of Urban Development-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program works with the Area Council of Governments (AGOC) to provide funds and support services for homeless families that are approved for housing vouchers.  The relationship between the West Texas VA HUD-VASH program and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allows for a partnership that helps Veterans, local communities, VA and HUD work toward ending homelessness among the Veterans in West Texas.  Our WTVAHCS Veterans Justice Outreach/Veteran Re-entry Programs works with the legal systems throughout the area to ensure Veterans are able to receive care even through difficult times and navigate the justice systems by providing helpful services and follow-up care.  In Big Spring, the facility works with The Wood Group to offer short term placement for Veterans that are in need of a place to stay while arranging other options.  The Military Partnership Counsel brings agencies together throughout the Abilene area to share projects and programs designed to enhance services to our current Veterans and the Veterans transitioning to civilian life. The social work, coordinated care and nursing service meet with local providers at least twice each year to provide education and an open forum for discussion related to purchased care services. In addition, the facility works closely with the Bureau of Prisons (Federal Correctional Institution, Big Spring), and the Texas Veterans Commission, and many sub agencies under that umbrella.
