Nearly 50,000 veterans in the United States are in search of a place to sleep every night. They are homeless and have little food to eat. That's why the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has a hotline for anyone in need or at risk of being in need. The hotline number is 1(877) 4AID-VET. Learn more on the Birmingham, Alabama VA Medical Center website. There is safe housing available, as well as employment opportunities and health and mental health services.
