U.S.VETS Monthly Newsletter - May 2013

 

Celebrating 20 Years of Serving Veterans - 1993-2013

 

Special Event! Save the Date!

 

Tonight, more than 500 veterans will sleep on the streets of our Nation's capital. Over the course of a year, more than 1,500 veterans in Washington D.C. will fall into homelessness and spend weeks or months looking for shelter and assistance.

 

U.S.VETS is breaking ground on a new facility that will provide housing for 85 veterans in SE Washington D.C. The program will serve more than 200 veterans annually, significantly reducing the number of veterans on the streets of Washington D.C.
