THIS WEEK ON
"ABOUT FACE" 25 January 2009
“About Face” has a new station. Still the same day and time but we have moved to 1190AM. Remember 1190AM at
Sundays 3PM Mountain time. The web site is www.1190novam.com.
Although accurate numbers are impossible to come by -- no one keeps national records on homeless
veterans -- the VA estimates that nearly 200,000 veterans are homeless on any given night. And nearly
400,000 experience homelessness over the course of a year. Conservatively, one out of every three
homeless men/women who is sleeping in a doorway, alley or box in our cities and rural communities
has put on a uniform and served this country. According to the National Survey of Homeless
Assistance Providers and Clients veterans account for 23% of all homeless people in America.
What can we do to reach out and help our brave and valiant servants who have fell upon hard times?
Veterans need a coordinated effort that provides secure housing and nutritional meals; essential
physical health care, substance abuse aftercare and mental health counseling; and personal
development and empowerment. Veterans also need job assessment, training and placement
assistance. The U. S. Vets of Arizona is sponsoring, from 6 Feb through 8 Feb, just an event that will
provide these essential services to the Homeless Veterans in the Phoenix area. The Arizona Stand
Down is one of the largest outreach events providing vital services to the homeless veterans. Services
provided include V. A. benefits assistance, medical services, showers, clothing, housing assistance,
meals, haircuts, mental health services, legal aid assistance, and much much more.
What can you do?
The Arizona Stand down is expected to serve over 500 homeless veterans. If you are not already
involved you can volunteer your time or financial support to a local homeless veteran provider in your
area or send contributions to your local provider. You can call U.S. Vets in Phoenix at 602-305-8585.
This week we will have Brad Bridwell, Arizona Director for U.S. Vets, Terry Araman, Resource
Developer and Client Coordinator for LODESTAR day resource center, and Jerry Zielsdorf of the
Madison Street Veterans Association, a grassroots organization of homeless and formally homeless
veterans in the Phoenix area.
