So many of you support 1Matters and Veterans Matter that I wanted to tell you that among the TEN veterans we housed today across the country, you allowed us to write a deposit allowing a mom, dad and three children to move out of Beach House and into their own home for the holidays! And we just got a call from the VA about a veteran sleeping in his car while waiting for an inspection to be approved. YOU are allowing us to put him up in a hotel pending that inspection.
