On any given night in the U.S. hundreds of thousands of people, including children are homeless. 37,000 military veterans are among them.

In 2017, the Veterans Community Project (VCP) began a program to help homeless veterans, a program so compelling, it could capture your heart.

(Story continues from "Read More")

VCP selects veterans who are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder whether from the horrors of war, and/or from surviving on the streets.

These veterans need to put their lives back together, and that can begin with a comfortable home located near the support services they require.

In Kansas City, VCP has built 49 cute little houses to help these veterans and they plan to build more there, and in Orlando, St. Louis and in Longmont, a Denver suburb.

The Kansas City project will include a community center, with a fellowship hall, doctor and dental offices and a barbershop.

This bold beginning may eventually become one of the answers to housing homeless people and perhaps housing low-income people in the U.S. and elsewhere.

In California, the housing situation is so desperate, the Governor is offering developers long term discounted leases on state owned property to build affordable housing complexes.
