More than 60,000 U.S. veterans are homeless and the Veterans Administration estimates that they make up 14% of the homeless population. While Congress can't agree on much, helping those veterans is a priority for both Democrats and Republicans.
In a bipartisan effort, celebrity home builder Ty Pennington will be visiting both the Republican and Democratic national conventions as part of the "Craftsman House United" project, aimed at bringing volunteers and elected officials together to build a house from scratch for one deserving veteran and their family.
Pennington joins the Starting Point team to unveil the project on the show this morning.
