'Men Left Behind'
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) states that the nation’s homeless veterans are predominantly male, with roughly 8% being female. The majority is single; live in urban areas; and suffer from mental illness, alcohol and/or substance abuse, or co-occurring disorders. About 12% of the adult homeless population is veterans.
Today we conducted an interview with Allen Rolland , online columnist live from California who works with veterans as well.
