Housing

HousingThe U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) estimates that nearly 50,000 veterans are homeless on any given night, and veterans appear to be at greater risk for homelessness than others. As federal programs are working to move veterans and their families out of homelessness and into permanent housing, state and local organizations can work to combat veteran homelessness in their communities.
