Group Searches for, helps Homeless Veterans
The group refers to its assistance as “vetworking”. Their goal is to eventually have a mobile command center that would allow them to do on-the-spot counseling and a fleet of vehicles that could be used to transport veterans to job fairs and government agencies.
The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates there are currently 67,000 homeless veterans across the country. Their goal is to reduce that number to zero by 2015. Leal claims that more needs to be done to “meet the veteran where they live” if this goal is to be accomplished.
