On Veterans’ Day 2014 we received the grim news:  there are between 300 and 400 men and women who have fought in the armed forces of the United States who are homeless in Lane County.  Hundreds of heroes among us who didn’t have a roof over their heads that night.  It was news that made it nearly impossible for me to sleep in my own home, safe and dry and warm while they had no door to lock, no heat to turn up, no kitchen to prepare a meal.

So we launched Operation 365 Veterans with the goal of finding a home each day for the next year for one of these men and women and their families.

By Veterans Day 2015 we intend to be able to say, “There are no homeless veterans in Lane County.”

And we are off to a good start.  With partnerships forged between St. Vincent DePaul of Lane County, the cities of Eugene and Springfield and Lane County we are exceeding our daily goals and with public , private and nonprofit groups working side-by-side we will be able to make that a true statement.

See Operation 365 Veterans Facebook Page for more details and updates on our progress.
