Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Real quick. Our chronic homeless numbers for veterans went up 400 percent since the beginning of the boot camp in this process and we have housed double the number of veterans every month, from 30 to 60 homeless veterans every month. We will end homeless veterans and it will be because of everyone in this room.

I just want to say to all the VSOs out there that Council has given us this great tool. Every one of us needs to use this, because in our organizations, it is the Year of the Veteran every year, but now it's the Year of Veteran in Philadelphia. We do have a kick-off event on 10 March, and there'll be lots of events from all these different organizations celebrating the Year of the Veteran.

Thank you.
