Veterans NOW, a coalition of nine local organizations, as well as local and federal government agencies, launched in August 2013 with the goal of ending homelessness among veterans by 2015. To date, the campaign has succeeded in housing over 400 veterans, about half of whom were previously chronically homeless. Funders interested in veterans - or in ending homelessness for all - are invited to a brown bag lunch to learn more about this successful model for connecting homeless individuals with housing. We will be joined by Ronald McCoy from the D.C. Housing Authority, a member of Veterans NOW.
