      falls within the income guidelines, but the HUD website is not the 'portal' to get into the program for this family. First and foremost, the waiting lists are almost always horrendous.

      There's a sub program of HUD, or Section 8 housing as it's known, called HUD/VASH (Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing) administered through the Homeless Veterans Program at the nearest VA hospital. Inquiries should be made to that local program.

      Last Summer we put 82 chronically homeless veterans into HUD/VASH housing here in Tucson. These days the vouchers that remain here are informally reserved for veterans with families, just like the one described above.
