Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner Larry Herke says efforts to prevent homelessness among Minnesota veterans are working.  Herke says the veterans omnibus bill passed by the legislature is a big help:

“This important legislation provided funds to assist in housing critically homeless veterans, some of these veterans with the very highest barriers, so that every veteran can have a place to call home.”

Commissioner Herke says the numbers are going down and Minnesota’s goal is to become the fourth state to end veteran homelessness.
