VA, HUD & Jon Bon Jovi Helping Veterans
The VA launched Project Reach, challenging innovative developers to create easy mobile access to resources for homeless veterans in need. Says Secretary Shinseki, ” This contest taps the talent and compassion of the Nation’s developer community. We are asking them to make a free, easy-to-use Web and smartphone app that provides current information about housing, health clinics and food banks.”
Project Reach (Real-time Electronic Access for Caregivers and the Homeless) was announced in collaboration with the Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services, and the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people facing economic challenges.
