1.7 The New Face of Veteran Homelessness

Homelessness among veterans has long been characterized by the aging Vietnam veteran. Now, veteran homelessness more closely mirrors nonveteran homelessness, including younger veterans and veterans with children. This workshop will provide an overview of veteran homelessness today, the impact of recent changes in the population, and how veteran service agencies should adapt to meet the needs of this more varied veteran population.
