Homeless veterans in Central Oregon are now getting a roof over their heads; but they need furniture and other household goods. Kenny LaPoint with Housing Works says they've given out 17 housing vouchers so far and have 8 left. These veterans who are getting the help are coming from chronic homelessness. LaPoint has personally visited some of the veterans at home: "They're very grateful to be in the housing and not be homeless anymore; so that's really exciting to see. And I think at this point we want to find a way to get them some items to fill the house, like beds.  I've literally walked into places and seen folks living in an empty house and a sleeping bag on the floor." If you'd like to donate much needed household items you can do that starting this Saturday (Feb. 5th) at the Bend Community Center Thrift Store on NE Franklin Avenue. LaPoint says they need everything from beds and couches to pot and pans, forks and spoons.
