Not long after Barack Obama was elected President, he worked closely with Eric Shinseki, Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), on eliminating homelessness among people who are veterans. The issue became so important that Sec. Shinseki publicly stated that he wanted to completely end veteran homelessness by 2015.
The VA is taking some immediate steps to aid homeless veterans. Recently, a webpage was created on the VA site. If you know or work with a veteran who is homeless, please pass this information along to them.
