The Issue: Homelessness Among Veterans

According to data from the National Coalition for the Homeless, veterans represent 23% of the homeless population, 76% of whom experience alcohol, drug, or mental-health problems. The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness conducted a study in Minnesota that found that living in supportive housing “significantly improved residential stability” and contributed to “decreased mental health symptoms and alcohol and drug use” among homeless residents.

The Campaign: Funding Bedding and Kitchenware

If this Grassroots campaign raises $350, then EdgeAlliance can fund bedding and kitchenware for veterans transitioning out of homelessness. The veterans will live in Alpha House, a home EdgeAlliance is in the process of renovating exclusively for very low-income or homeless veterans. Alpha House will combine permanent affordable housing with case-management to help residents stabilize their lives. Necessary supplies, such as bedding and kitchen items, increases the overall quality of Alpha House and can help improve the health and well-being of its residents.
