Action Ministries & HOPE Atlanta to Announce New Veterans Program
Two leading nonprofits will make a major announcement on Monday about a new program designed to help homeless and at-risk veterans in Georgia.
The public is invited to the event presented by Action Ministries and HOPE Atlanta that will take place on Monday, November 12, 2012, at 10:30 a.m. at VFW Post #5255 located at 368 Grayson Highway, Lawrenceville 30046.
U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs, will be the featured speaker.
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, veterans make up 23 percent of the entire U.S. homeless population. While there are more than 60,000 veterans in the metro Atlanta area, there is currently no coordinated effort to provide housing and services to veterans who are homeless or at risk of losing their home.
