Jericho Project Statement on Secretary Shinseki’s Resignation

Jericho Project Executive Director Tori Lyon and other staff attending the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans conference in Washington, DC, today had the privilege of hearing U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki speak about the progress the VA has made in ending veterans homelessness. Shortly after, we learned that Secretary Shinseki has resigned. He is an American hero and has been extraordinarily committed to ending homelessness among veterans. We hope that this will be a first step towards fixing some of the problems with veterans receiving the care they have earned and deserve.
