GOALS FOR 2022
•    Increase number of Veterans assisted through the Emergency Fund to 500 annually.
•    Provide an additional 40 tiny shelters for the CTRS program at the VA campus.
•    Pilot new program called Veteran Street Academy to support social workers with the most difficult homeless cases.
