Community Resource and Referral Center (CRRC)

The Washington DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center's (DCVAMC) Community Resource and Referral Center (CRRC) exemplifies the Medical Center's commitment to providing excellent care and services in an environment of compassion that respects homeless and at-risk Veterans.

The CRRC is the first of its kind in the Washington DC area and will serve as a 24/7 hub to combat homelessness among Veterans. It is one of 17 Centers the Department of Veterans Affairs plans to strategically locate across the nation. These facilities centralize federal and local partners to provide services to homeless and at-risk Veterans.

Although not a shelter, the CRRC provides services to assist Veterans and their family members.

The building includes a Primary Care Clinic, a complete kitchen, laundry and shower facilities, a food pantry and a play room for children, as well as a host of other community services. (Please note that not all offices are open 24/7.)
