Raise awareness in your communities about the ever-increasing number of homeless veterans, especially women veterans and those with children.
The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans states that homeless veterans are mostly
males, but about 8% are females. Most are single and many may suffer from mental
illness, alcohol and/or substance abuse. About 12,700 veterans of the recent conflicts
were homeless in 2014 and the number of younger homeless veterans is increasing. 77% of homeless female veterans are unemployed. Your unit can get involved in several ways.
