Fayetteville, Ark.—On Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2019, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette ran an article entitled, “Vet homelessness on path to effectively end in Northwest Arkansas.” Steve Burt, then executive director of the Northwest Arkansas Continuum of Care, said at the time his group had a goal to end veteran homeless by the end of 2019.

Why not?

Well, that’s complicated. Listen to our podcast.
