Homeless Female Veterans: Most people are not aware that this population exists.

Monday, 10:00 pm EST BettyJean speaks with Jas Boothe the founder and President of Final Salute Inc. about an unspeakable problem!

THE WORD HOMELESS SHOULD NOT BE ASSOCIATED WITH ANY VETERAN.  However, a homeless population of female Veterans exist.

Final Salute Inc. is a non-profit (501(c)3) organization which believes in paying homeless female Veterans with the proper respects due to them for the service they have provided to our country. Final Salute also works with the female Veteran in establishing a plan towards independence.

It is estimated that there are currently 13,000 homeless female Veterans in the United States. For the sacrifices they and their families have made, this is an unacceptable state for any of them to be in.

Heroes should not be homeless.  The mission of Final Salute Inc. is to provide homeless female Veterans with safe and suitable housing.

Of the 500 transitional housing programs for male veterans in the United States, a little over half can accept women. Some female Veterans who have experienced Military Sexual Trauma (MST) may not be comfortable staying in co-ed facilities. There are affordable housing programs and temporary housing units available to all Veterans, but the waiting lists are long and some female Veterans have minor children for which they are responsible; some facilities cannot accommodate children.  Over half of homeless female Veterans are single mothers.

The needs of homeless female Veterans are immediate.  They need your support today! http://www.finalsaluteinc.org
