Resources For Veterans and Their Families
According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness there are over 49,000 homeless Veterans in the United States. Due to their Military Service they have a higher risk of experiencing traumatic brain injuries and PTSD. Consequently, Veterans make up 8.6% of the entire homeless population in the United States. And, of all the Veterans in the United States, 20 of them commit suicide every day accounting for 18% of all adult suicide deaths in the United States per year.
These are not just statistics. They are people. Veterans and their families need a community effort that pulls together resources to ensure the transition into civilian life is easier.
