The purpose of the event is to increase awareness of services available to Veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming so; the VA has undertaken this aggressive outreach to further its goal of ending homelessness among Veterans by 2015. We are looking to showcase the National Scope of this effort and to generate local and national attention while obtaining the necessary "buy in" from community providers.
