About the chapter

Why learning about mission-driven veteran housing will help you:

  • Veterans have long been overrepresented among the homeless population. Major strides have been made to house these veterans, and veteran homelessness has dropped nationwide by more than 49 percent since 2010. But risk factors for homelessness, poverty, and barriers to income and care remain.  
  • If you work with unhoused populations, you will most certainly have veterans among your clients or residents. The risk and resilience factors related to military service present important considerations for developers, operators, property management, clinical and support staff.
