HOUSTON - it's nice to be able to welcome back those who have had to sacrifice for our military.but what if they didn't have a home to come to?
"They kind of live in chaos, and so you have to adjust to come and not have that chaos in your everyday life." Marilyn Brown, CEO for for Coalition for the Homeless, has helped remove some the chaos by helping vets to have their own home sweet home in Houston. Brown adds, "We have housed 6,649 veterans in our area alone that were experiencing homelessness and are now experiencing permanent housing."
Thanks to those sort of efforts, in 2015, Houston became the first major city in the U.S. to declare an effective end to veteran homelessness.
