This presentation will provide a brief overview of Dr. Montgomery's work around homelessness among Veterans and describe a proposal to better understand how to prevent homelessness among Veterans who reach out to the VA's National Call Center for Homeless Veterans.
Dr. Montgomery has 20 years’ experience working in the field of homelessness and housing. Since its inception in 2009, she has worked with the National Center on Homelessness among Veterans (NCHAV) to develop and implement a diverse research agenda; she has extensive experience using VA administrative data sources to address her primary research interests: identifying homelessness and risk among Veterans seeking healthcare, assessing interventions intended to mitigate this risk, and studying vulnerable populations and related health disparities. Her work focuses largely on addressing social determinants of health—including housing instability, gender, violence, and justice involvement—to improve the health of Veterans.
