There are limitless opportunities to improve and expand the services available to help homeless veterans, either as an individual or as a member of a group or organization. The most effective assistance is provided by community-based organizations like Haven For Heros that work within local networks offering a range of services from housing to continuing case management and counseling as the veteran proceeds through a detailed plan leading to self-sufficiency.
This is yet another day in my life without any justice or closure. If you don't know what happened please watch the video in my bio and share it.
I was harassed by several employees at a store. They opened a private love letter i had given to a girl working there. They obviously used it for their own amusement and made terrible comments. They then gave me the letter back and banned me from the store.
They knew i was homeless and had no resources, that's why they treated me like i was nothing.
They have faced zero consequences for what they put me through.
I have since struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts. I have abused my body by consuming an unhealthy amount of alcohol and i've gained over 80 pounds.
I am at a point now where i realise that in order to move on and function like a normal human being, i need some justice and closure.
But i can't do it on my own. The people involved in this hate crime can be up to 40-50 people and i am just one person.
I appreciate all the help i can get. #hatecrime#homeless#humanrights#lgbtq#help#icakvantum#icakvantumåhus#justice#abuse#harassment @humanrightswatch@lgbtq
The #Seattle Times reports that in clusters of heterosexual homeless men and women, #HIV is rising due to the sharing of syringes and needles as the opioid crisis devastates the area. But, as the piece notes, Seattle is just one of many cities experiencing similar public health problems. #reports#opioidcrisis#homeless
