with Kelly Rose, Chief Housing Solutions Officer for the Michigan State Housing Development Authority

In 2015, just over 4,400 veterans experienced homelessness, a 21 percent reduction from the previous year. Homelessness is on the decline in Michigan, but there are still many challenges. With the help of the Grand Rapids Area Coalition to End Homelessness and Community Rebuilders Kent County is the first community in Michigan to achieve the Ending Veteran Homelessness designation from the United State Interagency Council on Homelessness. There are 50 other communities and three states across the nation that have received this remarkable designation. Kelly Rose of the Michigan State Housing Development Authority joins host Laurel Hess to talk about veteran homelessness and the importance of funding to combat homelessness in Michigan.
