Statistics On Homelessness
How many homeless veterans are there?
Although flawless counts are impossible to come by – the transient nature of homeless populations presents a major difficulty – the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) estimates that 39,471 veterans are homeless on any given night. Three times that many veterans are struggling with excessive rent burdens and thus at increased risk of homelessness. The number of young homeless veterans is increasing, but only constitutes 8.8% of the overall homeless veteran population.
