Dallas City plans to propose a Veterans Affairs Commission to help make sure the veterans’ needs are met.

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson announced at a small Veterans Day ceremony outside the city hall.

The Veteran Affairs commission will have city officials, veterans, and non-profit partners.

Dallas is planning to eliminate veteran homelessness by the end of next year.

Chad West, the chairman of the Dallas Housing and Homelessness Solutions Committee, said, “No one in the city of Dallas should have to experience homelessness, especially not our men and women who have served our country.”

The mayor said Dallas is home to nearly 43,000 veterans.

The commission will help connect them to job training and other resources.
