Re:  We Can All Do Something to End Veteran Homelessness

Dear Mayor:

The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has launched a program to end Veteran homelessness by the end of 2015. No one who has served our country should ever go without a safe, stable place to call home. The entire department has put its energy and resources into ending Veteran homelessness. VA's programs provide individualized, comprehensive care to Veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

The VA recognizes that it cannot do it alone. Organizations and individuals in communities across the country are integral to providing services to Veterans and spreading the word about the resources VA provides to end and prevent homelessness among Veterans. We encourage you to visit va.gov/homeless to learn about VA's programs for Veterans and to find out what you, your neighbors, and your community can do to help Veterans who are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless.

Know that one phone call can be the difference in the life of a Veteran who is homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Make the Call to 877-4AID-VET (877-424-3838) to be connected 24/7 with VA's services to overcome or prevent homelessness for any Veterans you know.

Please share this information with your residents.

Very truly yours,

Arthur R. Ondish, Past President, NJLM;
Mayor, Mount Arlington Borough

William G. Dressel, Jr.
Executive Director
