Although flawless counts are nearly impossible to obtain, the VA estimates that 107,000 Veterans are homeless on any given night nationally.
In Hillsborough County, according to the most recent census in 2011, approximately 900 of the estimated 18,000 homeless men, women, & children were Veterans. This does not include those who were at-risk.
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, the unemployment rate for recently discharged Veterans is nearly 3 times the national average.
Over the past 4 years, Tampa Crossroads, Inc. has assessed and provided services to over 400 homeless and at-risk Veterans and their families in Hillsborough County.
