About Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative (from website)

The Homeless Veterans Initiative began in June 2008 when two members of the Milwaukee chapter of Veterans of Peace, Mark Foreman and Dennis Johnson, began interviewing homeless veterans at Repairers of the Breach, a daytime shelter in Milwaukee, to find out what kinds of help they needed.  It began slowly, giving bus tickets to homeless veterans to help them to get to appointments, and walking them through the process of qualifying for health care and other benefits.
