The Wakulla county veterans services office is teaming up to provide more help to homeless veterans.
The director for veteran affairs in Wakulla county estimates more than three thousand veterans live in Wakulla county.
They've teamed up with supportive services for veteran families and healthcare for homeless veterans program to provide medical and
financial assistance to homeless veterans in the area. The goal is to bring the help directly to the veterans.
Harold Ross, Wakulla County Veteran Services Officer said, "It's not what I can do for the veterans it's how many resources I can put them in touch with that can help them and the two ladies who I'm working with have a wealth of resources at their disposal more so than I do alone to help them get what they need."
Today was the first day the representatives were in the office. They will be there every third Monday of the month from 10 a.m.- 11 a.m.
