Point in Time (PIT) Count* – Jan 2018:
National snapshot of Veteran homelessness showed that:
On a single night, just over 37,800 Veterans were experiencing homelessness
On the same night, just over 23,300 of the Veterans counted were unsheltered or living on the street
Between 2017 and 2018, there was a 5.4 decrease in the estimated number of homeless Veterans nationwide
And still, the estimated number of Veterans experiencing homelessness in the United States has declined by nearly 50 percent since 2010
HOW WE HELP
We are a team of individuals dedicated to improving the lives of our Veterans by providing beds and basic needs when moving out of homelessness. We also provide clothing, shoes, food, and other items of urgent need for our Veterans.
Often, the funding from the VA and other Veterans agencies is limited to supporting our Veterans with first and last months rent and not much more. Unfortunately this results in our Veterans (and often their family members) by sleeping on the floor and not having the money needed to buy food, towels, blankets and other necessities. This is where VSA is contacted by these agencies to support our Veterans with these items.
Veteran Support Alliance (formerly The Imagine Project, Inc.) was incorporated in 2013 and received its 501c3 status in 2014.
