We will create advertisements and meet with homeless veterans so that they will learn about our new program.
Local, State, and National Level: We will contact local and state leaders about providing funding for our outreach program. We will also talk with local leaders about transportation and creating bus stops to pick up these veterans.
How Others Can Take Action: Other people can share advertisements about our outreach program and the VA, and they can volunteer at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
