Knoxville Area Homeless Veterans Stand Down
Homeless veterans in Knoxville got some help from organizations all over east Tennessee.
"Knoxville Area Homeless Veteran Stand-Down" organized the event.
Veterans were able to receive clothing, haircuts, help on resumes, and even legal services.
More than 130 volunteers provided meals for the heroes.
Program leaders say its clinics like this that can help veterans get past barriers they face and end homelessness.
"There's always been a homeless population with veterans. With other community resources, we are seeing less so we're doing a great job identifying these folks and helping them" said Christie Cook, the co chair of the Knoxville Veterans Affairs.
Eight east Tennessee organizations helped make this annual event possible.
