Omnia Group, a Manhattan real estate development firm, is using Mercury to educate the Dept. of Veterans' Affairs about its program to provide housing options and supportive services to homeless veterans.

The US Dept. of Housing and Urban Affairs' homeless assessment report found more than 37K veterans experienced homelessness on a single night in January 2019, of whom 61 percent were staying in emergency shelters or transitional housing programs.

The number of homeless vets has declined by 50 percent from 2009 to 2019, according to the report.

Former Congressman Jeff Miller, who co-chairs Mercury's Washington and Tampa offices, handles VA outreach for Omnia.

The Florida Republican headed the House Veterans' Affairs Committee during his three terms in Congress before stepping down in 2017.
