Ron is a disabled Vietnam veteran homeless in Boston. This time, he has been without a home for five months. Ron was in transitional housing, but he says they were not helping and only taking his money.

Ron says he’s living moment to moment while hoping for the best, yet he says that never happens.

Ron’s story breaks my heart. No one should have to live on the streets homeless, and especially not the men and women who bravely served our country. Cities around the U.S. are claiming they have put an end to veteran homelessness, and there has been a lot of progress, but the real truth is many veterans are still without a home and we still have a lot of work to do.

    Visiting is a different experience. Was it for able to work or family shelter or a substance rehab? . Many are not so nice or welcoming to people with long term illness or disability needs . Many are run by outside agencies that have able to be working in 30 days on applications. I’m a single multi-disabled female vet we have even worse odds of any safe or accessible help. I have left shelters for my health and safety.
