According to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans most homeless veterans are single; live in urban areas; and suffer from mental illness, alcohol and/or substance abuse, or co-occurring disorders and about 11% of the adult homeless population are veterans.
Join NACo for the “Veterans and Homelessness: County Solutions for Ensuring Veterans Have an Affordable and Healthy Home” webinar. The webinar will highlight the barriers encountered by veterans in their efforts to find affordable housing and health services. Participants will hear from housing and health care experts, a personal story from a veteran that has faced these barriers, and a county representative working to eliminate the barriers on the local level. The webinar will highlight strategies and opportunities county leaders can use to ease the barriers that homeless veterans face.
