Listen: Officials say US veterans' homelessness declines 5%
"Nationwide. The number of homeless veterans fell by thirty eight thousand in the year two thousand eighteen that represents a five percent decline from the previous year, HUD, secretary Ben Carson joined Fox News and was asked about our homeless veterans. You know, we look at our veterans one percent of our population protects the other ninety nine percent of us and allows us to live in peace and freedom. So we should be willing to really help them out. And unfortunately, many of them are traumatized. Have a lot of things going on in their lives. So they end up homeless on the streets. What we've discovered is that just putting them in a house doesn't necessarily solve their problem or just giving them wraparound services clinical services and things like that don't work. But when you combine those things together, we've had a tremendous impact on reducing the homelessness, but this is a wonderful model inter agency cooperation, and that's one of the hallmarks of this administration. All this thick Terry's know, each other we work together, we talk about the problems, and we use our collective resources empowers to solve them. This is an excellent example of that. And I've had a chance to travel recently to Miami to Midland Texas places like that. That have declared victory and homelessness as have sixty seven communities, including three states. It is wonderful to those veterans and see how just thrilled."
