Survey of homeless veterans shows slightly fewer living on the streets than a year ago

Survey of homeless veterans shows slightly fewer living on the streets than a year ago

A survey of homeless veterans in Riverside County in January found a 4 percent reduction among those living on the streets or in encampments, compared to a survey of the county’s entire homeless population one year ago. The overall number of homeless veterans, however, rose from 285 in January 2013 to 290 in January 2014. The 1 percent increase is due largely to the number of veterans living in emergency or transitional shelters. (Attached to this release is a comparison of homeless veterans in 2013 and 2014 and a copy of the full survey results.)
