Kansas City refuses veterans to remain homeless and builds them for free in their own city

 

Several commentators applauded the group for working hard to help veterans in need …

“It’s great, so happy for the veterans who receive these blessings!

“So proud to have volunteered with them and seen the growth of this organization from the beginning. I can not wait to see where they will grow next! ”

Others wondered how veterans had been selected for the opportunity to live in the small community of origin …

“How are these VETS selected? I do not want to see a good thing to lose. ”

And others have wondered about the mental health needs of veterans …

“How do you manage mental health issues immediately? A house will not repair them. Mentors on the spot?

Far too many of our military and our women struggle with homelessness and dependency. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development estimates that there are just under 40,000 homeless veterans, the majority of whom are between 50 and 60 years old. The number of homeless veterans is declining, in part because of initiatives such as the Veterans Community Project. Housing and community projects like this one here in Kansas City are hopefully the beginning of many projects that will give money back to our veterans.

The combination of a place to live and tools to live a better life, as modeled here by the Veterans Project, is a victory for everyone involved.
