And although nationally those numbers are going down they are on the rise locally. Area homeless shelters are seeing more veterans walking through the doors in need of help and even with many helpful programs in place some are still struggling to make ends meet. If you or someone you know is in need of help you can contact VA Supported Housing at 701-200-1928 or The Salvation Army at 701-775-2597.
