Harbor Homes of Nashua kicks off campaign to help homeless veterans
"We just can't tolerate having homeless veterans after the sacrifice they have made for this country," said Peter Kelleher, CEO of Harbor Homes and the Partnership for Successful Living.
The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates there are about currently 50,000 Iraq and Afghanistan vets who are homeless or at risk of homelessness throughout the country.
"Our goal is to raise enough money to leverage the federal funds that are available," said Kelleher who added the target for the End Homelessness Fund is $200,000.
