Hi, Roy Burlingame. Thank you for your comment. According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s annual Point-in-Time Count, there were 653,104 homeless people in America, of which 35,574 were homeless Veterans. In 2023, homeless Veterans now represented only 5.4% of the homeless population. This is because significant progress has been made to prevent and end Veteran homelessness since 2010. For more information, read our helpful article: https://news.va.gov/126913/veteran-homelessness-increased-by-7-4-in-2023/

Could you please break down the number of homeless? I dont believe only 43000. I was always told that Vets were 30% of the homeless population. We as a country have over 600000 homeless so quite a difference delta.

Thank you for your comment, David Santana. If you know of a Veteran who is being released from incarceration, please have them call our National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at 877-424-3838. This service is free, confidential, and is staffed 24/7 with trained counselors who can talk with them right now and connect them with their nearest VA for assistance. We can help with reinstating benefits as well as address any housing issues they may have.

I so appreciate all you guys have done and continue to do. I have a concern on incarcerated veterans who are coming out after doing their time and when, example like me ask to reinstall my benefits it takes 5 to 6 month and pushes the veteran to be homeless. What programs can we use for this process to be more quicker.
