Thousands of brave men and women who served our country are now living on the streets. Mental health problems and drug addictions keep many veterans from holding down jobs. However, efforts are underway to find housing for down and out soldiers.
Efforts to give a second chance to homeless veterans are underway. The Volunteers of America, which has services for homeless vets in 7 Florida cities, bought a Tallahassee apartment complex and next week its doors will open to homeless veterans. The Tallahassee American Legion helped furnish the 52 units.
