Bill Richmond, a long time Journalist in the communities of East Central Indiana, and former Editor a local newspaper, sits down with Eldon Solomon, Clinical Director/CEO of The Journey Home.
Over the months of March, April and May of 2020 Veterans at The Journey Home have struggled in very unique ways during the COVID-19 social isolation and limited access to relied treatment and VA and community resources experience. Prior to the VA and Government lockdowns, The Journey Home traveled over 4,000 miles a month transporting homeless and community Veterans to VA medical and mental health appointments throughout the region. Overnight, access to these important appointments virtually stopped.
Mr. Solomon speaks candidly and openly about the impact social isolation has on recovery from homelessness and how important program and services like The Journey Home and communities are in “ending Veteran homelessness.”
