On Friday afternoon, rapper T.I aka Clifford Harris, launched his new foundation called, “Veterans Empowerment Organization” (VEO) that supports homeless veterans in West Lake Ave, Atlanta. Along with his wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris by his side.
“No veterans, anywhere should have to go without the basic necessities of shelter, food, toiletries. They have already paid for that,” T.I. told the crowd as he spoke on Friday. T.I. went on to say that is is only because he has been blessed with more than most, that he feels he should give more than most and that is why he is helping to house homeless heroes.
The VEO has already provided housing and food to over 60 veterans that were once homeless. The organization finds these vets under bridges and on Atlanta’s city streets, and gives them the help and opportunity they need and deserve to stay alive.
