Report: Vets Stay Homeless Longer than Civilians

  |  November 10, 2011

WASHINGTON — Homeless veterans spend more time on the street than their civilian counterparts and are more likely to develop serious mental health illnesses or physical problems as a result, according to new research.

The 100,000 Homes Campaign released its study of more than 23,000 homeless citizens on Tuesday, the same day a new Pew Research Center report showed dissatisfaction among wounded troops with their post-military care. More than half said the government does not provide enough assistance.
