Veterans and chronic homelessness has received a great deal of attention lately from both the media and the federal government. And while the recent decrease in veterans homelessness is welcome good news, it is easy to lose sight of the individuals whose lives are being changed for the better and are the faces behind the numbers.
The 100,000 Homes campaign recently profiled a formerly homeless veteran – Ted, a veteran in Phoenix, Arizona who served in the Middle East and then experienced homelessness for 20 years. Through the help of Project H3 Vets, he recently moved into his very own apartment. 100,000 Homes is a national movement of communities working together to find permanent homes for 100,000 of the country’s most vulnerable and chronically homeless individuals and families.
What recent success stories has your organization had in ending chronic homelessness? The campaign encourages you to send your good news to Linda Kaufman, their national field director. It would be wonderful to feature the good progress being made to end homeless for our must vulnerable neighbors in New Jersey through this national venue.
