This past Saturday, dozens of organizations across the region participated in the Winterhaven Homeless Veterans Stand Down at the Washington DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

For the second year in a row, Google partnered with Project CARE to provide special Google Voice accounts to homeless veterans. We provided about 500 accounts, giving homeless veterans a phone number that can be put on job applications and resumes, or handed out to family and friends. We’ve been offering similar services in the San Francisco area for the past few years.

As we mentioned last year, providing Google Voice accounts is a small gesture, but we hope these veterans find the product useful. Thanks again to the Winterhaven organizers for giving us the opportunity to participate.
