In 2017, for the first time since 2010, the number of veterans experiencing homelessness increased. In fact, over 40,000 veterans experienced homelessness at some point last year. These 40,000 veterans account for over nine percent of all homeless adults,
even though veterans represent less than 10 percent of the total U.S. adult population. Congress has done much to address the plight of our homeless veterans, but we must continue our efforts. This is why I urge you to join me in combating veteran homelessness
by cosponsoring H.R. 4099, the ‘Homeless Veteran Families Act’.
