On Wednesday, New Directions, a veterans service agency, and Wells Fargo will announce a $100,000 partnership to support those who served in the armed forces.

The money will be donated in the form of a grant to New Directions for services such as assistance in providing long-term transitional housing, substance abuse treatment, mental health and post-traumatic stress disorder support, and others.

The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority estimates that more than 8,000 veterans are living on the streets, accounting for 11 percent of all homeless veterans nationwide.

New Directions has been providing services to thousands of veterans in Los Angeles County since 1992.
