Celebrating an End To Veteran Homelessness
Lake County is now among an elite group of communities throughout the nation that has officially ended veteran homelessness, based on certifications from the federal government and Built for Zero, a national nonprofit organization. In order to achieve this milestone, government and nonprofit partners worked together to develop real-time data tools to assure that veterans experiencing homelessness are quickly identified and connected to housing and services.
