Long Beach Cites Progress in Finding Homes for Homeless Veterans
Monday, October 19, 2015
Long Beach is on track to join the ranks of US cities that have made sufficient housing available for every veteran in need, Mayor Robert Garcia said Wednesday.
In four years, the number of homeless veterans in the city has been reduced from 309 to 94, as of the biennial survey conducted earlier this year. On average, housing is found for 12-15 a month, according to the city's figures.
