02 Oct Collier County Board of Commissioners Meeting- Great Outcome!
On September 24th, 2019, the Wounded Warriors of Collier County was given the opportunity to speak at the Collier County Board of Commissioners meeting. We briefly explained why we did the “Vet Count”, how many veterans we found, and what we have been doing to help those we have located. Karter Elliot (Marine Veteran) and Kim Hayes (Gold Star Mom) spoke on how our homeless problem in Collier County has directly affected their lives and those of their families.
We could not have asked for a better outcome! We got a great response from the council who gave their full support in resolving this issue in Collier County. After hearing how many homeless veterans we currently have, it was a unanimous decision to make it a point to have more beds available by the end of 2019.
This is a HUGE step in the right direction for our county and we are grateful for your support!
