Jackson County and the federal Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are teaming up with an ambitious goal: housing all homeless vets by the end of the year.
Vets can have it rough: we hire them, train them, put guns in their hands, and send them off to war. But once they're done in the military, veterans meet with mixed success finding places in society.
A new program will pump money into efforts to get veterans into homes, with $6 Million coming to Jackson County through ACCESS, Inc.
ACCESS is Jackson County's community action agency, the focus of several anti-poverty programs.
