Homeless veteran Jim Wolf has been suffering from alcoholism and poverty.  This video shows Dégagé Ministries giving Wolf a makeover. According to the video, the makeover has given Wolf the inspiration to turn his life around! Wolf is scheduled to have his own housing and is attending Alcoholics Anonymous (for the first time)!

About 13% of the homeless adult population are veterans.

Roughly 40% of homeless veterans are African-American or Hispanic.

About 1.4 million other veterans are considered at risk of homelessness due to poverty, lack of support networks, and dreary living conditions in overcrowded or substandard housing.
