Care for the homeless, and address the causes of homelessness. Stop criminalizing homelessness, retrain law enforcement to ensure they assist the homeless, and provide proper care for mental patients. Veterans make up a disproportionate percentage of the homeless population -- we must also fully fund hospital care for veterans, house homeless veterans through the VA, and provide returning veterans with a transition period for debriefing, restoration, and job training before they are thrust back in society.
As a Vet, the hardest thing I experienced, was leaving the service and being dropped back into civilian life, a real sense of abandonment. The Military spends tons of money and quite a bit of time turning regular guys into soldiers and sailors ect.., why not either extend their service time by a month or 2 and train them to be a civilian, work on transferable job skills, assess them psychologically, set them up with the support system to streamline their process, work with employers
