They do a good job of trying to stay on that mission, but they would love to close it out. They also work with people who are at risk of being homeless, such as those struggling to get to doctor's appointments due to their health issues or the cost of medication.Highlights:{01:12} What is The Journey Home{04:05} The homeless issue in the veteran community.{12:26} What the homeless vet can expect when they come into the program.{15:05} When a family is homeless.{19:43} Activities for senior veterans that keep them moving.{29:53} Navigating the VA system as a seniorThe Journey Home Vets Bio:Incorporated in 2014, Randolph County Veteran Shelter, Inc, DBA as The Journey Home (TJH) has fully engaged itself in the mission to “end Veteran homelessness.” Like all great grassroots stories, our participation in this mission started with an awareness of a problem and a conversation about solutions. A small group of individuals, which quickly turned into an army of local, then regional, and now national individuals and organizations, have come together as partners to make a difference. To make a difference in the lives of Veterans and to “end Veteran homelessness.”Our Mission: Veterans are our priority. Our mission is to end Veteran homelessness; and to connect Veterans to local, regional, and national communities. Together we provide stability, support, and interventions so that Veterans are empowered to attain housing and independence.There is no other population in the United States that has better access to care than a military Veteran. The quality of care is rightly debated but there is no doubt that our Veterans’ medical and health care is a high priority to the US Government and the US citizens and their community partners. Yet the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) estimates that less than 50% of all eligible Veterans are enrolled in VA Services. Too few of our heroes are isolated and are missing the love and support that eagerly awaits them. TJH accepts this as a neighbor and community problem to solve.Links:Phone: 765-595-8297Website: https://journeyhomevets.orgFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/journeyhomevets
