In 1776, the United States of America recognized the need to provide for those who had risked their lives for the cause of freedom. Since then, there have been changes in many different aspects of our country, but the urgency to provide benefits to veterans has stayed the same.
“Success is how high you bounce when you hit the bottom.”
General George Patton
What’s wrong with this picture?
Who are homeless veterans?
The vast majority are single, most come from poor, disadvantaged communities, 45% suffer from mental illness, and half have substance abuse problems. 57% of homeless veterans served during Vietnam.
How many homeless veterans are there?
Although accurate numbers are impossible to come by…according to the VA, more than half a million are homeless in course of one year. That is one out of every four homeless men who are sleeping in an alley, box, or door way has put on a uniform and served our country.
Why are veterans homeless?
There has been extreme shortage of affordable housing, livable income, and access to health care. A large number of displaced and at-risk veterans live in lingering effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, substance abuse, compounded by lack of a family support network.
