Homelessness among military Veterans is down, yet specific and unique needs remain.
Targeted efforts to reduce homelessness among military Veterans appear to be paying off. Over the last decade, Minnesota has intensified and coordinated efforts to end homelessness among Veterans through coordinated efforts like the Homeless Veteran Registry.
Since 2000, the percentage of people experiencing homelessness, who are also military Veterans, has decreased steadily (16% to 7%). This is particularly hopeful given that the overall homeless population has increased by 10% between 2015 and 2018.
