Spotlight on Veterans: Project 60

Vet

They serve our country, yet many veterans return from service and do not have the support network and employment resources to stabilize. Over 7,400 veterans are homeless in Los Angeles County on any given night.

In honor of Memorial Day, we’re highlighting three critical efforts to end veteran homelessness in our region.

1.  We’re partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to host one of the nation’s largest job fairs for veterans on July 10th at Sony Studios.  If you’re a veteran or an employer and you want to participate, please sign up today to join us: http://www.regonline.com/HiringHeroesinLA

2.  Project 60 launched this year, and aims to house the 60 most vulnerable military veterans on the streets. Project 60 might sound familiar as we highlighted it in our Spring Report as a major progress in targeting resources to house our most vulnerable residents. Here are the 5 big things to know about Project 60:

  • This project spawns new cooperation among key players: The Department of Veterans Affairs is partnering with federal, County, and City officials as well as nonprofit organizations to house the 60 of the most vulnerable homeless veterans in 2 years.
  • It plans to house and support the most vulnerable veterans in Hollywood, Santa Monica, Van Nuys and Venice. Each community has identified those veterans most likely to die on the streets.
  • Four nonprofit organizations, Ocean Park Community Center, St. Joseph Center, Step Up on Second, and San Fernando Valley Mental Health Center will help identify and treat homeless veterans.
  • This model gives chronically homeless veterans a permanent home with services including medical treatment, mental health counseling, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and job training.
  • It employs the Housing First approach, where permanent housing is the first, critical priority, and individuals are provided the supportive services they need once they’re stabilized in permanent housing.

3.  Our partner, Path Achieve Glendale, has also announced a very ambitious goal: they have committed to ending Veteran homelessness in Glendale by Memorial Day 2012. Check out CNN’s Memorial Day coverage of Path Achieve’s efforts:

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near
    future but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and
    style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being
    off-topic but I had to ask!

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to
    go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!
