Helping homeless veterans


KIMT NEWS 3 –- Like finding work, other veterans also have trouble affording a place to live and the federal government is looking to take care of them.
The department of Veterans Affairs has set a goal to end homelessness among veterans by next year.
In Minnesota, several organizations and upcoming projects will help those veterans in need of a place to stay.
Local leaders in Rochester tell us they don’t see many homeless veterans, but, if they do, they will help them find a place to live.
“If they make the decision, that they want to settle in Rochester, then we can get the funding needed to get them in housing or home,” Olmsted County Veteran Services Supervisor Neil Doyle said.
He adds he’s seen a lot of homeless veterans passing through the city of Rochester and says they can even help them get temporary assistance while they are in town.
