“The consensus is that Biloxi VA is doing great,” Mary Simmons, executive director and CEO of Open Doors Continuum of Care, said. “They are out there, at the soup kitchens, in the community providing outreach. As soon as we know of a homeless Veteran, a VA employee is helping with housing and resources. No Veteran should be homeless around here who wants housing. The VA has made sure of that.”
The Gulf Coast program uses a combination of cohesiveness, strong partnerships and open communication within the community of care, along with Supportive Services for Veterans and Families.
