Denver Gets More Vet Help
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has selected 92 organizations to receive a financial boost to combat homeless veterans, and 4 of them are located in Denver.
The city’s Colorado Coalition for the Homeless was given $217,965, enough to fund approximately 19 beds.
The Salvation Army and Denver Department of Human Services each netted $114,245, while Catholic Charities led the pack with $450,000 to be allocated to beds for the mentally ill.
In June, the city’s Department of Human Services also received money from the federal Department of Labor for veteran training programs.
