***Editor’s note: Around Veterans Day we often get questions about how people can get involved to help veterans in our community. There are plenty of local veteran service organizations who would love your help, so we always encourage you to find a cause close to your heart and do what you can. But we could also use your help spreading the word about our veterans housing program.
Sadly, there are a few dozen homeless veterans in Placer County who are eligible for housing assistance vouchers - but can’t find a landlord to take them.
Through our veterans housing program, landlords get guaranteed rent and a chance to give back to those who have served.
