Mitigating Factors

Point in time statistics indicate Florida has the largest population of female veterans, numbering 160,000. This distinction is significant because of the high percentage  of homeless female veterans with children. More than 60% of surveyed Grant Per Diem (GPD) programs that serve this target audience do not house children; those that do have restrictions on age and/or the number of children. Because of a variety of factors including mental/emotional illness, loss of family support, abusive relationships, substance abuse dependencies and exposure to military sexual trauma (MST), these women and their children have no where else to go and no one to turn to.
