As part of our investigative efforts, we reached out to several veterans and SSVF associates in order to expose ourselves to the community needs, challenges, and desires when addressing homelessness within San Luis Obispo. DeVonia Colbry - U.S. Navy - Material Handler Goodwill Industries Central Coast “I’m hoping this is a pilot program. I’m hoping this is a model. You gotta place them, with veterans, we have a lot of drinkers … that’s what the community rooms are about, healthy stuff going on in there... and will draw somebody to it. With the community in mind, I think this could be a great project.” DeVonia’s Interview: https://youtu.be/7bb6bdu07CY Shane Smith - U.S. Marine Corps Cole Farms Trucking - Logistics Tech - San Luis Obispo “Coming back was fine because I was still around people that I served with.” “Camaraderie: brotherhood, its more than a family.” “I didn’t feel like I fit in anywhere, due to things I saw in the marine corp.” Shane’s Interview: https://youtu.be/KMLvuG28q_k Chris Berthiaume - Site Supervisor (SSVF) “I see this project as an opportunity to create a center point that then has a ripple effect across the community in positive ways.” Chris’s Interview: https://youtu.be/bHHD5MIExtE

Alan McKean - Workforce Services for Veterans (SSVF) “There’s a critical need for housing in San Luis Obispo anyway, but when it comes to homeless there is a great need.” “A lot of people want to help, but when you have a project like this, to us, as far as SSVF is concerned, it’s ideal, because it’s something that can come to fruition.” “[Veterans services] can provide a return of belief that things can get better.” Alan’s Interview: https://youtu.be/OcaggbTek8c
