One of the major challenges facing veterans is homelessness. Of the 636,017 homeless people in the United States, 67,495 are veterans. Veterans are twice as likely to become chronically homeless as other Americans. This is due, in part, to veterans’ heightened risk of unemployment, foreclosure and poverty. Check out this Infographic, Shedding Light on America’s Homeless Veterans, to learn more about this demographic of homeless Americans and how the government and nonprofit organizations are addressing the issue.
