Homeless Veterans Association Founded By Devan Marks, Bryan McCallister, Mimi Trinh, Krista Quinn

We want to create a stable and secure life and job for our veterans coming home without a home. We would like to cooperate and work with other organizations to help with our cause.

What is the problem:The problem is people risk their lives to serve our country and in return don’t have shelter when they come home. This mostly affects veterans with disabilities because it is harder for them to find shelter on their own. PTSD that soldiers develop can also negatively affect the way they live.

Why it should have attention: This topic should have attention because veterans play an important role to protect us. In return we should give them what they need to have a stable life again.

Our plan: The plan would be to locate the homeless veterans and take them into a shelter. Then we would help them find stable jobs to make money by collaborating with organizations. We would mainly help the veterans with disabilities because it can be harder for them depending on their condition.
