Helping Out Homeless Veterans

Hey, the Department of Veterans Affairs does more and more to give homeless vets a hand: VA triples spending on homelessness problem...

The Department of Veterans Affairs on Thursday awarded almost $300 million in grants for homeless and low-income assistance efforts, three times what the agency spent on that program last year.

That's big, reminding us to all lend a hand.

Locally speaking, here's what I support, all recommended!
