The National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH) continues its “Never Another Homeless Veteran” Campaign launched on November 6, 2013 (see Memo, 11/8/13). NAEH urges advocates to use social media to spread the word about the progress made to date, while also pointing out the work that remains in order to end veteran homelessness.
While veteran homelessness has decreased by 24%, there are still tens of thousands of veterans without a home. The more people who are aware that veterans are sleeping on the streets, the more support will be garnered to end veteran homelessness.
NAEH asks advocates to encourage those they connect with via social media to sign a statement that reads:
“We recognize that we have benefited from the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who have served our nation.
We commit to ensure the continued dignity of the men and women who have shown courage and resolve in the defense of our families, friends, and freedoms.
We have a plan to help veterans who need our help.
We will act to secure resources, educate officials, and contribute to the ongoing efforts by private and nonprofit organizations to guarantee that there is never another homeless veteran.”
