Homeless Veterans

Estimates from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs have shown a significant decrease in homelessness among veterans. While this reduction is promising, the needs of veterans struggling with mental illnesses, homelessness, unemployment, and other barriers to reintegration still exist.

Of the veterans living in America today, 63,000 are chronically homeless. Although they represent a relatively small percentage of the general population, veterans make up nearly 20 percent of the homeless population.

There is a growing generation of veterans with new challenges to face. In the past 10 years, two million troops have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. As they return home, many will experience challenges adjusting back to civilian life.Roughly 300,000 returning troops currently suffer from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or major depression and anxiety. Additionally, over 320,000 individuals have suffered a probable traumatic brain injury during deployment.

The need for support for our nation’s veterans will only continue to increase.
