Canadian vets in crisis get $900K in funding for help | Homelessness | Scoop.it
Dartmouth-based Veterans Emergency Transition Services (VETS) Canada has been awarded a three-year contract to provide 24-hour emergency counselling to homeless veterans and veterans in crisis across Canada.
Christopher Stevens, CIPP/US, CIPP/G, CIPM, CIPT's insight:

Thanks @picardonhealth! It's tragic when non-profit orgs take better care of vets than their govts.  Canada and US share a common border. They also share a more dubious distinction. They are unable to take adequate of their veterans. Oh, the shame of it all!

Christopher Stevens, CIPP/US, CIPP/G, CIPM, CIPT's insight:

Some in US would like to wish homelessness away.  They can then feel less guilty the next time they turn a blind eye to the plight other suffering Americans and their children.

Ranjana Srivastava: To some, universal healthcare is free medical treatment, but others rely on it as a safety net when other institutions fail.
Christopher Stevens, CIPP/US, CIPP/G, CIPM, CIPT's insight:

Thanks @RicBarraArch1!  Could Australia's struggle to manage its healthcare system be a harbinger for things to come in US?  Verdict still out on ACA!

VA outrage outrunning the facts - Arizona Republic

VA outrage outrunning the facts - Arizona Republic | Homelessness | Scoop.it
VA outrage outrunning the facts Arizona Republic Our politicians are now engaged in competitive outrage over the VA hospitals, trying to be the most outraged, and accusing other politicians of not expressing outrage soon enough, or loudly enough,...
Christopher Stevens, CIPP/US, CIPP/G, CIPM, CIPT's insight:

@RobertRobb I agree w/you in this case. VA's chronic shortcomings aren't new.  Where were the politicians before this latest story broke?  It must be getting close to November.
