On any given night in the U.S., 50,000 veterans are either homeless or on very rough times.

Operation Renewed Hope Foundation is trying to change that terrible fact.

The charity provides a range of services for assisting veterans, breaking the cycle of homelessness or preventing veterans from becoming homeless. Services include housing and transportation, plus assistance with medical and legal bills.

So far, they have helped more than 300 veterans and their families and raised more than $300,000.

The CEO of Operation Renewed Hope Foundation, Lt. Col. Deborah Snyder (Ret.), and Vietnam veteran Richard Rodriguez appeared on "America's News Headquarters" to discuss the great work the organization is doing to help our vets.

Snyder said that she was motivated to start the charity three years ago when she found out there were 68,000 homeless veterans nationwide. That number has since dropped, but it's still nearly 50,000.

"Organizations like ours across the nation are doing everything they can to make sure that the veterans get their needs met," Snyder said.

"Any conceivable way that we can put people into a home, off the streets, so that we can proceed to get them the health care that they require," Rodriguez explained.
