“It is simply unacceptable for individuals, children, families and our nation’s Veterans to be faced with homelessness in this country. Home is the center of the American dream. Stable housing is the foundation upon which everything else in a family’s or individual’s life is built-without a safe, affordable place to live, it is much tougher to maintain good health, get a good education or reach your full potential.” President Obama
