The population of homeless veterans in the United States is shocking. The United States Department of Housing and Urban Develop (HUD) estimate that over 49,000 veterans are homeless on any given night in the U.S. But homeless veterans did receive some hope on February 13th of this year. The VA announced that $300 million dollars in grants will be given to help end homelessness among veterans. According to the VA, the grants will go to non-profit organizations and other groups that serve through VA’s Supportive Services for Veteran Families program.
There are many organizations, fundraisers, events out there that support homeless veterans including a new event being held this spring. On May 17th, the 1st Annual VA Vigilante PaddleFit Challenge will be held in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. This event is designed to help raise money for homeless and disabled veterans in the North Carolina area. The co-founder of the VA Vigilante PaddleFit Challenge is a veterans and attorney at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban Law Firm. David Russotto, co-founder, is the Managing Partner of the Veterans Disability Benefits Department, which helps veterans appeal their disability claims against the VA.

Thank to Mr. Spencer I was able to get my VA disability claim re-reviewed and given another chance to receive disability. By far he is one of the most professional lawyers I have ever dealt with. So Veterans if you are looking for help with your VA disability claim I would suggest that you hire Macari, Russotto, Spencer, & Balaban. Thanks again for everything.
