Rags of Honor 1 Organization
o Last year, 300,000 veterans were homeless for at least one night in America.
o The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) estimates that 57,849 veterans are homeless on any given night.
o The number of young, homeless veterans is increasing. In 2010, it is estimated that 12,700 veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation New Dawn (OND) were homeless.
o About 1.4 million military veterans are at risk of homelessness due to poverty, a glaring lack of support networks and dismal living conditions in overcrowded, substandard housing.
o Often, when people support veterans, they are unsure about the details of how the funds will be used. When you support Rags of Honor 1, you know your contribution directly supports the assistance for homeless and unemployed veterans.
o Individuals and organizations that make donations directly to the Rags of Honor Foundation can rest assured that those monies will provide direct support services for the veterans such as professional training and continuing education.
