Urging Landlords to Fight to End Veteran Homelessness

First lady Releases Video

Michelle ObamaOn November 5, 2015, First Lady Michelle Obama released a video in which she implored landlords across the country to contribute to the national drive to end veteran homelessness.

In a year when communities like Portland and Los Angeles have announced homelessness states of emergency, other communities like New Orleans and Houston have announced an end to veteran homelessness.

The First Lady reminds landlords that they can contribute to the progress while also looking after their bottom line by renting to veterans who have received federal housing vouchers.

“You all have the power to open doors for Vet and give them the stability they deserve, and help our country solve an issue that has been swept under the rug for far too long.”

She says.
