Brevard County’s constitutional officers along with NVHS will host the sixth annual Rescuing Veterans Lost in America Gala on Oct. 16 at the Radisson Resort at the Port Convention Center. National Veterans Homeless Support (NVHS) has been instrumental in drastically reducing the homeless veteran population on the Space Coast. The population went from a high of 1,800 homeless veterans in 2008 to less than 300 by 2018. George Taylor Jr., the NVHS president and CEO, said the organization’s work is successful because of the community involvement. There is still a lot of work to do, said Brevard County Property Appraiser Dana Blickley. Everyone should want to support veterans for the sacrifices they made on the nation’s behalf. In addition to Blickley, the other elected officials involved in helping NVHS help the veterans are Clerk of Courts Rachel Sadoff, Sheriff Wayne Ivey, Tax Collector Lisa Cullen, Supervisor of Election Lori Scott, State Attorney Phil Archer and Public Defender Blaise Trettis.
