From the M25 President Dr. Robin Weinstein: On July 5th, the day after our #IndependenceDay celebration with all its fanfare and patriotic zeal, I was invited to tour the "home" of a #Vietnam #Veteran who served in the U.S. Marine Corps. A member of Bethany Grace Community Church has become familiar with him and his story through our shower ministry for the homeless.
This homeless #hero of #CumberlandCountyNJ is recovering from colon #cancer with a colostomy bag in the middle of the woods in #Fairton. While some enjoyed their #July4th fireworks, his "home" was caught in a torrential downpour of rain.
#HOUSING is a #HUMANRIGHT for all and NO VETERAN should be #HOMELESS! The Cumberland County Housing First Collaborative will work with our partners to ensure that he, along with every veteran, man, woman, and child have a place to call #home. Learn more at www.endhomelessness2020.com
and join the movement! #BetheMiracle #BridgetonNJ #MillvilleNJ #VinelandNJ
Members of the Collaborative include: Gateway Community Action Partnership, Prac Newjersey, Resources for Independent Living, Inc, M25 Initiative, Cumberland County, NJ Jail and Inspira Health Network.
