Senator Menendez congratulated the more than one hundred (100) attendees at the Summit for their efforts to “eliminate homelessness over the next ten years”. He spoke about his support for the reauthorization of the McKinney-Vento program as well as for Homes for Heroes. He stressed that homelessness affects “every gender, every race and even all of us who have homes.” He referred to home as the epicenter of the American Experience and that if “home is where the heart is then many Americans have been heartless as too many people in this country are homeless.” To listen to the speech click here or use the link below.
