HOMELESS VETERAN AVOIDS GOING “UNDER THE BRIDGE”
A veteran called our office on a day that we are closed. An employee happened to be there, and answered the call. He had one more night at a local hotel, and then he planned to go “under the bridge”. He learned about us from a VA doctor and took the chance to call and ask for help. We were able to hand deliver a check to the hotel to cover another week’s stay while the HUD VASH Program secures permanent housing.
