9. Mahalo to you, she, for responding with
the valuable. detailed, information on Ending homelessness.
This is one of my personal gratitude issues.. It's thanks to the Democratic Plan that so many will not have to be without a home if they don't want to be. I know some people actually prefer living out outside but that's the exception.
Everyone should be able to have a roof or a yurt over their head to protect them from the elements and have a sanctuary to go home to.
Update on Ending Homelessness for our VETS..
White House Fellows Participate in Winterhaven Homeless Stand Down
Posted by Archie Bates on January 29, 2013 at 11:01 AM EDT
The White House Fellows recently had the great pleasure and honor of participating in the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) Winterhaven Homeless Stand Down in Washington, DC. The Stand Down is an annual event in which over 60 federal, state, and community agencies provide a range of services to needy and homeless veterans. These include cholesterol checks, eye exams, employment counseling, clothing distribution, benefits claims assistance, PTSD and trauma screening, personal care items and meals. The Stand Down is part of the VA's goal to end veteran homelessness by 2015.
White House Fellows served in the kitchen and dining area, which for most veterans was the last stop of the day. Some Fellows greeted veterans upon their entry into the dining area and reviewed with each veteran his or her schedule, to ensure that each veteran had the opportunity to access all of the available resources. We served meals, including salads, vegetables, barbecue, desserts and beverages. Fellows also helped disabled veterans to their seats and carried veterans' meals and bags of supplies and clothing. Finally, we helped clean tables, so that no veteran would have to wait to be seated. With the other volunteers, we served over 500 veterans during the day.
I have a strong feeling if we had a majority of Dems in Congress that we could help people better and faster in getting on their feet with a home and a job.
the republicons wouldn't even vote to give 9/11 Rescue workers and New Yorkers money for medical treatment from toxic dust and debris at ground zero ..
Plan to Aid 9/11 Victims Is Rejected in House
Those who say the Dems and the repubs are the same are damn liars prefering to wear blinders and tinfoil hats.
