Annual Conference - Sen. Jack Reed!
July 31, 2009
I’m sitting here, listening to what is NO DOUBT a standing ovation given to Sen. Jack Reed who just gave an address to at the final plenary session at the Conference.
The senator – a longtime homeless advocate and champion of highly successful legislation to prevent and end homelessness – touched upon a number of different topics, including the ramifications of theHEARTH Act and the inexcusable tragedy of veteran homelessness.
“We have a lot of work to do,” said the senator.
He’s already started, it seems. Yesterday, the senator announced, he introduced the Zero Tolerance for Homeless Veterans – in an effort to do just that: end veteran homelessness.
Whew! Guess you never know what’ll happen!
