Imagine life after war. Injuries change everything. Disabled Homeless Veterans begging for help

Imagine life without your arms or legs. The difficulty of performing your simple every day routine. Then you run out of money, can’t pay you rent, and end up on the street. You swallow your pride and beg for help. But help never comes. By the end of the day, you are hungry and thirsty. You count the change you collected. It’s just enough for one bottle of water. The sun has gone down and you’ve drank your water. The shelter is full, cana’t sleep there. So, you find the side of a building and nestle up against it. You’re exhausted and weak from not eating. As you close your eyes, all you can do is cry, and hope that help will come tomorrow. Tomorrow comes and goes. Still no food or help.

Only 1/2 of 1% of the people in our country join the military. They enlist in the military and go to war to protect our way of life. They love our country because it is the only place on this earth that allows us to raise our children the way we feel we should. Giving them the abilities and desires to succeed in life. If it weren’t for the men and women of the military, our way of life would not exist.

Our wounded Veterans are foregoing a grave injustice. After the VA mends their wounds, the military discharges them and sends them on their way to fend for themselves. Even though these Veterans have applied for disability, due to the lack of physical and/or mental inability to work, they have no income to support themselves. VA Disability Claims have a backlog of up to 18 months. The Veterans are lost in the system, and have nowhere to turn to for help. They become homeless in a short period of time.

There are 57,849 homeless Veterans, 45,170 wounded Veterans, and 6,251 Soldiers killed in action. Over 800,000 Veterans have applied for disability. The Veterans Administration reports that there are 466,877 Veterans at-risk-of-homelessness.

Widows/widowers and their families, of soldiers killed in action, get no help from the VA. Not only are they mourning the lose of their spouse, they also lost that income. Making it impossible for the widows to continue living in their homes. They too, are ending up on the streets, homeless.

The US Conference of Mayors, December 2013, Hunger and Homelessness Survey, of 25 largest cities in the United States, in the Point-In-Time count of homeless, reports an increase of 52% over the past year. The impact of cuts in SNAP benefits and the inability of food assistance programs to meet the increased demand causes the biggest challenge in addressing hunger in the coming year by most cities.

Winter is just around the corner, Weiss-Samaras data reports an average of 30% of all homeless people die from the winter elements, frigged cold weather, snow, ice, and freezing rain. Without food and shelter it is a struggle just to survive each day.

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and VA Supportive Housing Program (HUD-VASH) partner to provide permanent, supportive housing and treatment services for homeless Veterans. 

As of September 30, 2013, HUD had allocated more than 58,000 Housing Choice vouchers across the country, which allows Veterans and their families to live in market rate rental housing while VA provides case management services. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly, by the local public housing authority on behalf of the participating Veteran. The Veteran then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program. The case management services facilitate the attainment of the Veteran’s recovery goals. The HUD-VASH Program is for the most vulnerable Veterans, and provides special services for women Veterans, those recently returning from combat zones, and Veterans with disabilities.

June 18, 2014, Memphis, TN, VA states that they have no more Housing Choice vouchers. Here is an interview with Lonnie Whitfield a disabled homeless Veteran from Memphis, TN. Unable to get assistance from the VA, he is living in his car. 

As you can see, I am not showing you a picture of a mistreated animal, which costs $15 a month (50 cents a day) to rescue. Like this one…

And I am not showing you a picture of a starving child from another country, where it costs you $30 a month ($1 a day) to supply food, medical care and education. Like this one…

I am showing you pictures of our own Veterans that have been injured while protecting our way of life. Now homeless and starving. Where $10 a month (33.3 cents a day) can feed and house our disabled homeless Veterans. Like this one…

And this one…

That’s right, you read it correctly! Now I will explain…The US Census reports that there are 225,915,250 adults living in the United States, with a homeless population of 610,042 with an estimate of 25% are Veterans.  

If every adult that lives in the United States ate just 1 dinner a month at home, and gave the $10 that they saved on that meal, to save the life of a homeless person, every month for a total of 24 months. We could Completely End Homelessness In America!  That’s only 33.3 cents a day! It would cost less then .0126% of our total national debt.

That $10 a month (33.3 cents a day) would feed and house every single homeless person on the streets. For 33.3 cents a day we can buy foreclosed homes (they aren’t free), renovate them to move-in readiness, completely stock the kitchen full of nutritious food, place all of the 610,042 homeless individuals in these homes with an estimated 6 months of utilities paid upfront, up to 18 months for Veterans, giving them a chance to get their disability checks coming in. Giving the homeless people a fresh start with 6 months (up to 18 months for disabled Veterans) leeway. Not only are they fed and sheltered, they now have a permanent address, where they are employable and qualify for the SNAP benefits, if they need them.

We are starting with our Veterans because they made the ultimate sacrifice, their freedoms of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They have been the protectors of our way of life. Our Veterans feel as though they are being punished by society for successfully protecting our freedoms which make it possible to achieve the American Dream!
