Homeless Veteran Aid

"Each and every night, more than 200,000 of our nation's veterans are homeless," said Obama. "More than 400,000 will experience homelessness over the course of a year. In my home of Chicago, as many as 38,000 veterans spend a night homeless over the course of a year, but our government is doing far too little to help these veterans find homes and employment."

Senator Obama quoted, March 16, 2006 on All Business dot com after the Senate unanimously approved legislation for funding to provide shelter and employment for veterans. Unable to locate the actual Bill. Senator Obama is on the Veterans Affairs committee as part of his Senate duties.
