Connecting Point: Veteran Homelessness | WGBY

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) states that the nation’s homeless veterans are predominantly male, with roughly 8% being female. The majority are single; live in urban areas; and suffer from mental illness, alcohol and/or substance abuse, or co-occurring disorders. About 12% of the adult homeless population are veterans. Produce Dave Fraser talks with several local Veterans and shares their stories of transitioning out of the US military and the challenges they faced.
