Homeless Women Veterans: Actions Needed to Ensure Safe and Appropriate Housing
Daniel Bertoni (au)
As more women serve in the military, the number of women veterans has grown substantially, doubling from 4% of all veterans in 1990 to 8%, or an estimated 1.8 million, today. The number of women veterans will continue to increase as servicemembers return from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of these women veterans, like their male counterparts, face challenges readjusting to civilian life and are at risk of becoming homeless. Such challenges may be particularly pronounced for those women veterans who have disabling psychological conditions resulting from military sexual trauma1 and for those who are single mothers. The Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA) has committed to ending homelessness among all veterans by 2015 and funds several programs to house homeless veterans. The two largest are the VA Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem (GPD) program, which provides transitional housing and supportive services; and HUD-VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH). This report addresses (1) What is known about the characteristics of homeless women veterans, including those with disabilities? (2) What barriers, if any, do homeless women veterans face in accessing and using VAńˇ╗s Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem and HUD-VA Supportive Housing programs? Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
