Thanks to Congressman Hank Johnson for this info:
SERVING VETERANS: There’s a new program that allows you to mentor veterans online called eMentor Leadership Program. New mentors and protégés complete an online profile, providing background information and interests that help match them to a suitable mentoring partner. Once their profile is complete, protégés can immediately seek a mentor, ask a question, join a discussion forum, review posted resources, and more For more information, click HERE.

HELPING HOMELESS VETERANS: Approximately 9,000 homeless veterans living on the streets and in the nation’s shelter system will soon find a permanent place to call home. U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Eric K. Shinseki announced today that HUD will provide $60 million to local public housing agencies across the country to offer permanent supportive housing to homeless veterans, many of whom are living with chronic disabling conditions.

The supportive housing assistance is provided through the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Program, which combines rental assistance from HUD with case management and clinical services provided by VA. Since 2008, a total of 48,385 vouchers have been awarded and 42,557 formerly homeless veterans are currently in homes because of HUD-VASH.
