U.S. Veterans Hospice Committee Attends Hearing to End Veterans Homelessness

U.S. Veterans Hospice Committee Legislative Director Sean Ferritor (right) and Acting Director of the VA National Center on Homelessness Among Veterans, Dr. Thomas O’Toole, discuss veterans’ homelessness after a hearing on Capitol Hill. 

                 The U.S. Veteran Hospice Committee attended a hearing recently held by the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs titled, “Ending Veteran Homelessness.”  Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Chairman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, welcomed two panels to Capitol Hill to testify on behalf of the Department of Veterans Affairs.

                “This is exactly the type of hearing we need to see more of on Capitol Hill,” says Legislative Director Sean Ferritor.  “As veterans continue to return home from conflicts abroad, it is essential that they have the tools in place from the VA to work themselves back into society,” continued Ferritor.  “Because as we have seen all too often, many of these brave men and women, who’ve put their lives on the line to protect ours, are particularly vulnerable to becoming homeless.”

                Without your constant participation in our program and mission, it would not have been possible to attend this important hearing.  I feel confident when I say to you that your voice is being heard on Capitol Hill.  Thank you for all that you have done in support of the U.S. Veterans Hospice Committee, and all homeless veterans.  Thank You!
