01.16.12

"According to the Homeless Research Institute, of the estimated 23 million veterans in the United States, anywhere from 529,000 to 840,000 will be homeless at some point during the year. Each night, approximately 300,000 are living on the streets or in shelters across the country, the institute said. As temperatures continue to drop below freezing, the number seeking shelter will only increase.

"Many of those homeless veterans are suffering from physical or psychological damage linked to their service."

In the story for Medill News Service published in the Austin Weekly News, Dr. Joseph Troiani, Ph.D., associate professor and coordinator of the Adler School’s Psy.D. Track in Military Clinical Psychology, points out that “veterans are twice as likely as any other American to become homeless." He elaborates further in this report examining the issues confronting homeless veterans and systemic challenges in addressing them.
