One in five homeless adults is a veteran.
In the United States, nearly 47,000 veterans are homeless on any given night and twice as many experience homelessness during a year. Right now, the number of homeless Vietnam-era veterans is higher than the number of service persons who died during the Vietnam war, and veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are already appearing among the homeless population.
Since 1992, we've been offering targeted veterans’ programs, and we're currently the leading human services provider to homeless veterans in the Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, Evansville, Indianapolis and Fort Wayne metro areas. We're committed to ending homelessness for those already on the street and preventing others from becoming homeless.
Proudly serving over 3,000 veterans in Ohio and Indiana each year.
