The Issue: Veterans Facing Mental and Economic Hardship
About 1.4 million veterans are considered at risk for homelessness, due to lack of support networks, poverty, and otherwise dismal living conditions, according to data cited by the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans. This problem is compounded by the fact that unemployment for post-9/11 veterans remains at 10.9%, well above the national average. Additionally, 44% of returning veterans have reported difficulties ranging from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to depression, making it difficult to hold down a job and support their families.
