May 28 Campaign Newsletter

Dear Campaign Supporters and Partners

This past Memorial Day, we remembered and honored the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.  We continue with our commitment to help the hundreds of veterans who are struggling with homelessness in our community.

Significant progress has been made in housing veterans in the last year:

However, there is more work to be done in ending veteran homelessness.  The results of the 2013 Point-in-Time Count showed that roughly 15% of the 8,879 homeless individuals counted in the San Diego Region are veterans – this equates to approximately 1,330 homeless veterans in the region!

We will continue to highlight best efforts and practices to end homelessness for our veterans and other persons residing on the streets in San Diego.  Thank you for your continued support and involvement in the Campaign.

Sincerely,

Jennifer LeSar, Campaign Coordinator

Robin Madaffer, Campaign Leadership Team Co-Chair
