They often experience significant challenges when it comes to handling daily activities such as work, going to school or having healthy relationships with their spouse, children, friends and loved ones. That can often lead to shame, anxiety, social withdrawal, sleep disorders, or even suicide.” ... read more »
Report Finds Homeless Vets In Los Angeles Struggle With Housing Options
November 12, 2021
A yearlong study of a group of homeless military veterans in Los Angeles found that few were able to obtain permanent housing over the course of the year despite living near the region's major VA service center.    The project, led by researchers from the nonprofit RAND Corporation and the University of Southern California, found that although the veterans wanted to get off the streets, the housing options available to them frequently did not meet their desire for autonomy, safety, security and privacy. Many study participants lacked confidence about their ability to obtain or retain housing, noting that their past experiences convinced them there were few options and little affordable housing available to veterans. ... read more »

Ending Workforce Discrimination is Up to Us
March 19, 2020
During my tenure at the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO), it became clear to me that access was the foundation of economic opportunity. The transportation sector lacked diversity, equity and inclusion, and this was glaringly obvious to both leadership and employees. Pathways began to emerge to grow a diverse pool of talent, but it was obvious that a more organizational framework was needed to operate at full capacity to best serve veterans, women, underrepresented, and underserved workers; groups that had been previously overlooked. ... read more »
The Homelessness Crisis – We Are Better Than This
March 12, 2020
There are half a million people, mostly men, mostly white, but way too many African Americans. African Americans are 13 percent of the population and 40 percent of the homeless. The homeless are primarily concentrated in California, New York, Florida, and Texas, but you can find them in almost any community. Two-thirds of the homeless are sheltered on a given night, but a third are sleeping on the streets, on park benches, in alleys, under awnings. To quote the late great Congressman Elijah Cummings, "we are better than this." ... read more »
