National Coalition for Homeless Veterans


12% of the homeless adult population are veterans
20% of the male homeless population are veterans
68% reside in principal cities
51% of individual homeless veterans have disabilities
50% have serious mental illness
70% have substance abuse problems


Things to remember on Veteran’s Day…homelessness is a major problem for the urban geography of most American cities and veterans are disproportionately affected (including Providence, RI).  Let’s remember them on the 364 other days of the year too.
