Louisville, KY (WDRB) -- They fought for this country, but many veterans are finding themselves homeless.
Organizers say more veterans are now finding permanent homes, but more work needs to be done. Several people attended the Homeless Summit Monday afternoon. Organizers say last year there were 223 homeless veterans in Louisville. The year before it was 314.
This year, officials say they are trying to reach out to the chronically homeless. Those include veterans who have lived in shelters for more than a year and veterans who are staying in homeless camps.
Todd Dedas with Healthcare for Homeless Veterans says, "We're putting in lots of efforts in to ending homelessness with the vouchers that we have for permanent housing. We have 300 of those that serve not only Louisville, but southern Indiana and some of the rural areas around Fort Knox."
Richard Hayes, the Veterans Voices of Kentuckiana Chairman, says he's hoping the meeting will raise awareness about homelessness. He says, "To get more people involved, to understand that veterans went overseas and did all of this for us. We need to help them out too. I don't care if it's combat or what it is they served, they need to be took care of. That's what we're trying to do."
There are now several homeless veteran outreach organizations. Those include the St. John's Day Center and Wayside Christian Mission.
