Ending Veteran Homelessness: Resources for the Final Stretch

Other | October 14, 2015

Over the past few years, there's been tremendous progress in how localitites are managing their homeless veteran population, thanks to the Obama Administration's 2009 commitment to end veteran homelessness. 

According to data collected during the most recent Point-in-Time Count, 49,933 veterans experienced homelessness on a single night in January 2014. That’s an overall drop of 33 percent when compared to the state of veteran homelessness in 2009.

This is a positive step toward the end-goal of getting our nation’s veterans off the streets, but there is still work to be done.  Nearly 50,000 veterans are still without a place to call home.

The following resources, tool kits, blog posts and guides have been compiled to give communities additional guidance and support during this push to house our nation's veterans.
