Status of Veteran Homelessness

Fighting in a war can be a harrowing and humbling experience for many, but imagine coming back and not having or being able to find a home.  More than one million veterans are at risk of becoming homeless, while tens of thousands of former servicemembers are already living without shelter, according to the Center For American Progress. In fact, one in seven homeless people previously served in the military, a December 2011 report found, and much of the other data surrounding homeless veterans are equally worrisome. The issue of veteran homelessness is becoming increasingly important as defense spending cuts limiting vital benefits for veterans will automatically take effect in 2013, if Congress doesn't take action, according to the Center For American Progress.

As the future of the veteran support systems hangs in the balance, a recent report found that, compared with other homeless people, veterans face even greater adversity. Former service members are 11 percent more likely to develop a life-threatening disease while living without shelter compared to their non-veteran counterparts.


Statictics from the 2011 National Point-in-Time released by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development show a grime picture for North Carolina as well as the rest of the nation.  Comparison between the 2010 and 2011 survey does not show any improvement in our efforts to eradicate this problem.
