King Lion Dan LeBlond sent this note:
At last Thursday’s Elk Rapids Lions Club Meeting, we had a speaker from the Traverse City’s Goodwill Industries talk about a project they are involved with: Building Veterans Transitional Housing (assisting homeless veterans in re-establishing an independent life).
You should find the attached pdf file (2 pages) interesting. It explains the situation and need. On page 2, under the bold heading “Why is Goodwill Pursuing This Project?” are Michigan homeless vets statistics that are incredible! Did you realize there are that many homeless vets living in rural Northern Michigan? Download pdf
An urgent need for outreach indeed. Thanks, Dan.
