CHARLESTON, S.C. - The Veterans Affairs Administration is awarding $2 million to seven counties in the South Carolina Lowcountry to assist homeless veterans.
Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald announced Friday the money will go to Berkeley, Charleston, Dorchester and Beaufort counties. The money will also help veterans in Hampton, Jasper and Colleton counties.
The money will serve veteran families who are working with One-Eighty Place, formerly known as Crisis Ministries, which is one of more than 300 community agencies nationwide that works with a VA program called Supportive Services for Veteran Families.
President Barack Obama has set a goal of ending homelessness among veterans by 2015.
