According to the most recent Point–in–Time Count, homelessness among veterans has declined by more than 17 percent since 2009. The intense work being done on this subpopulation has produced critical data and research that can help us work toward the goal of ending homelessness among veterans by 2015. Presenters will discuss risk factors, the changing face of veteran homelessness, demographics, and other topics.
