Veterans that need permanent housing.

There are many homeless veterans in Portland. I have met hundreds, each one has served in my life time and I delight in any opportunity to serve them. I am currently working with two veterans who are being considered for safe, affordable, permanent housing. They have this opportunity to have their own address and a place to call home. There is only a small window of opportunity for this to happen for them. Application fees have been covered but they each need a $300 deposit. If they can come up with this amount from here on out their monthly rents will be subsidized and covered by VA Pensions that are pending. In other words, for $600 we can end end homelessness for two Vietnam veterans... Now that's a welcome home!
