Location of Homeless Veterans | Knowledge | Corporate Connection
In January 2011 four states – California, Florida, New York, and Texas – accounted for 52% of all homeless veterans across the country, though only representing 28% of the total veteran population.
In 2010, 68% of homeless veterans accessed residential services in principal cities. This concentration of veteran homelessness in principal cities is more notable considering that the general adult and total veteran populations have a very different geographic distribution; the majority of U.S. adults (63%) and the majority of veterans (69%) are located in suburban and rural areas.
