With temperatures dipping well below freezing the last several days concern is on the rise for area homeless.
The VA Homeless Outreach Center is busy this time of year making sure all area vets are aware of the services they provide. From food, shelter, clothing,and health screenings. Making sure all veterans are safe when the weather gets dangerous.
Officials say the public often has the wrong perception of homeless veterans.
"We're talking about folks who were productive members of society, fall on hard times so I think that when people think of homelessness they have a real specific idea of who that is but what we find is that not the picture," explained Sarah Oliver of the VA Homeless Outreach Center.
The VA Homeless Outreach Center is located in the Rock Valley Plaza in Rock Island.
