More government agencies and private organizations are looking to tackle veteran homelessness as greater attention is brought to the pervasive problem.
New Orleans is the latest to see results from these broader efforts.
Run by the nonprofit Volunteers of America Greater New Orleans, the new Oscar J. Tolmas Veterans Center can house up to twenty former servicemembers at a time.
A transitional facility, the center is designed to provide temporary living arrangements and rehab services to veterans.
New Orleans and many other cities are now pouring more resources into these types of efforts, with the end goal of effectively eliminating veteran homelessness nationwide.
