Event Live Streamed on [Link]


Press Conference with Supervisor Otto Lee and additional speakers, including veterans, to celebrate the County of Santa Clara’s acquisition of the Homeless Veterans Emergency Housing Facility, HVEHF, in San José. The County Board of Supervisors approved purchase of this site on September 19, 2023 in an effort to enhance a core resource for the more than 50,000+ veterans in the South Bay. Since 2009, the HVEHF has provided transitional housing at this site, serving more than 6,000 veterans and being a key linkage to VA support. The County will continue to support transitional housing for veterans at this location with goals to create more temporary and permanent housing on site in the future. 

This purchase affirms the County of Santa Clara’s commitment to supporting veterans and is in concert with additional efforts by the Board of Supervisors including an annual Stand Down event, increased staffing for the County’s Veterans Service Office, and mobile health services.
