“Why are Veterans homeless? Shortage of affordable housing, livable income, access to health care, lingering effects of PTSD, substance abuse, and a lack of family and social support networks are all factors influencing homelessness” -National Coalition for Homeless Veterans
“The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have brought renewed attention to the needs of veterans, including the needs of homeless veterans. Homeless veterans initially came to the country’s attention in the 1970s and 1980s, when homelessness generally was becoming a more prevalent and noticeable phenomenon. At the same time that the number of homeless persons began to grow, it became clear through various analyses of homeless individuals that homeless veterans were overrepresented in the homeless population.” -Federation of American Scientists Congressional Reseach
Although Government agencies such as the Department of Veterans Affairs has established programs to assist in the relief for homeless Veterans local collaborative projects are still needed to reduce the number of Veterans needing housing assistance. Veterans Village Las Vegas has coordinated an effective community collaborative to guide Veterans and their families through times of crisis.
