WILMINGTON, Del. – Today, U.S. Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) recorded this public service announcement to help spread the word about the Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness. This is a partnership between New Castle County, the City of Wilmington, the Delaware State Housing Authority, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Veterans Administration to house 84 homeless veterans by the end of 2015 in New Castle County. 

“As a 23-year veteran of the Navy, I understand the sacrifices our service men and women make every day to protect our country, which is why I believe it’s important to make sure they have all of the opportunities they need once they return home,” said Sen. Carper. “Unfortunately, some of Delaware’s Veterans are without a home. As we head into colder months, let’s think about our veterans. If you are a landlord interested in partnering in this important initiative to end veteran homelessness in Delaware, contact the Homeless Planning Council of Delaware at (302) 654-0126.”
