A Forum on Veteran Homelessness

We just got this in the mail from our friends and partners at Homeward Bound and thought you'd like an opportunity to learn more about this issue and how you can get involved:

Today is Veterans Day and there are many activities to honor those who have served our country. Words are important, but actions are more important. Nearly 40% of all persons in Buncombe County experiencing homelessness are veterans. Join us tomorrow evening to be inspired and to learn how you can participate in ending veteran homelessness in our community.

Medicaid Expansion was a part of the Affordable Care Act when it was originally passed in 2010, but the US Supreme Court decision in 2012 that found this act constitutional, also gave states the option to opt out of expansion.

NC 2-1-1 Connections: Stormy Weather

Helen called 2-1-1 wanting to make sure that someone knew that she was wheelchair bound, living alone and in a floodplain. She wanted to know who could help her if flooding began.

Carlos called looking for help at his mother's house. Every time it rained, raw sewage spilled into her yard. He didn't know who to call for help.

Lena was running out of food and was afraid that if the bridge went out she'd be stuck without anything for her children. She wanted to know if there was a food pantry nearby.
