    A lifetime friend of mine, now living in Pomona, CA is very active. She is having a heck of a time getting their money assigned to the homeless veterans [something very cagy going on there]. The politicians say the money is used for that purpose but she can only locate one house with 4 veterans.

      That’s a travesty. She should contact the media down there. Housing is so important. You have a stable place to live, you can eat, shower, wash clothing, etc… You can establish residency, you can show up with good hygiene for job interviews and such. But, most importantly, you have a place to sleep that is properly sheltered and free from the negative things that happen on the street on the streets.

        Like I said, she is very active. TV, newspapers and trips to the state capital. When she latches on to something – watch out.
