Mayor Landrieu Makes Announcement 25 NJ Mayors Seek to End Veterans Homelessness
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu announced last week that his city had housed 227 homeless veterans, exceeding its goal of housing the 193 homeless veterans counted in the 2014 homeless census and effectively bringing an end to veteran homelessness in the city.
“What New Orleans has accomplished for homeless veterans shows that this is a problem that can be solved. In the future, homelessness among veterans in New Orleans should be rare and brief. Every city and town in America should take a look at New Orleans and say, ‘if they can do it, so can we.'”
