Veteran Housing

CASA is committed to helping the homeless in Chapel Hill, NC, Raleigh, NC, and the surrounding areas—and unfortunately, many of those who live on the streets are our veterans.

The average number of homeless veterans in 2023 was 35,574, per the Veterans Association (VA). Unfortunately, we may see this number rise due to variable post-pandemic factors, such as inflation, a limited job market and other realities of 2024.

Veteran housing initiatives rewrite that part of thousands of vet’s realities, offering them hope and a fresh start after they get back from serving their country. Read on to learn more.

How Do Veteran Housing Initiatives Make A Difference For Homelessness?

Supporting veteran housing initiatives impacts the lives of thousands in the lives of the Raleigh and Chapel Hill area. Here’s a look at the top three ways that veterans can benefit:

Providing Stability

Perhaps the most obvious benefit of these initiatives is the presence of stable housing for veterans. Having a home to come back to after a tour or disengagement allows veterans to build their civilian lives, grounding them and giving them the support they deserve for their tremendous sacrifice of time and effort.

Improving Access to Supportive Services

It can be difficult for veterans to secure access to supportive services without a stable address. This limits the prospective benefit that could come from job training, counseling, healthcare, and other interventions.

Enhancing Community Integration and Reassimilation

No two housing options are created equally. When veterans enter into supportive, community-led housing options provided for by these veteran housing initiatives, they are able to lead enriched lives. Creating a sense of camaraderie and belonging on the civilian side can speed up the vet’s transition into civilian life, making it instantly more rewarding, appealing, and in reach for many.
