A summit at Alabama State University was designed for federal, state and local agencies, so they could discuss working to end veteran homelessness. But that didn’t stop Delano Caldwell from showing up for answers.

The 40-year-old U.S. Navy veteran came to the meeting on Wednesday looking for affordable housing.

“I came to get as much information as I could about trying to find somewhere decent and affordable to live,” he said outside the doors of the Veteran’s Homeless Summit. “I am staying in a regular rented house, but I am so far behind on my bills and probably am going to get evicted, so I’m just trying to jump ahead and find me somewhere to stay before I hit the streets.”
