First Lady Michelle Obama, USICH Executive Director Laura Zeilinger, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti today helped kick off the Unite for Veterans Summit in Los Angeles. Organized by United Way of Greater Los Angeles, the gathering brought together key business and civic leaders, government agencies and community stakeholders to highlight best practices in housing, employment and other services for Veterans. United Way officials announced that through recent public-private partnerships, 9,000 Veterans experiencing homelessness in LA have been connected with housing. Mayor Garcetti announced that he and the City of Los Angeles were joining the Mayors Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness in 2015.
