No one knows how many Veterans are homeless. It is estimated that on any given night, from 200,000 to 400,000 Veterans are homeless. This represents 25% of the national homeless population, even though Veterans account for 10% of the general population.
This is a national tragedy that can and should be addressed. The Greater New Haven Community Loan Fund set up and manages a Veterans’ Housing Assistance Fund (VHAF) to provide grants and loans to support the acquisition, development, and rehabilitation of housing for Veterans.
All proceeds from the annual Veterans Housing Golf Tournament directly benefit the Veterans’ Housing Assistance Fund in its mission to address the growing problem of men and women who have served in the armed forces of the United States and now find themselves homeless.
