OPERATION HOME Task Force: Operating as a committee of the Governor’s Working Group, the Task Force works to address and end veteran homelessness in North Carolina. To achieve its mission, the Task Force seeks to implement a highly coordinated and resourced network of support that includes elected leadership, key statewide agencies, federal agencies, local and regional service and housing providers, and Veteran service organizations. It encourages and supports the multi-faceted good work being done in many communities across the state by securing resources, providing technical assistance, and convening work groups to address specific challenges. The Operation Home Task Force meets monthly at the NC Department of Military and Veteran Affairs in Raleigh.
