National League of Cities Statement on City of Phoenix Ending Chronic Veteran Homelessness

WASHINGTON, Dec. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following statement can be attributed to Clarence Anthony, executive director, National League of Cities (NLC):

"We congratulate the City of Phoenix on the milestone accomplishment of being the first city in American history to end chronic homelessness for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. For those who have served and sacrificed for the safety and security of our nation, even a single homeless veteran is one too many. We call on all cities across America to follow Phoenix's example and work to ensure all veterans have access to safe, stable and affordable housing.

"Chronic veteran homelessness remains a serious problem across the U.S. While the federal government has set the goal of ending veteran homelessness by 2015, nearly 60,000 veterans still lack safe and stable housing. To accomplish this goal, we urge Congress to continue providing the U.S. Departments of Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban Development with the necessary resources to allow city leaders to continue collaborative efforts with local stakeholders and national organizations such as NLC and the 100,000 Homes Campaign."

The National League of Cities (NLC) is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities. NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans.
