Homeless Female Veterans: Undercounted and Underserved
The federal government estimates that on any given night, 3,000 to 4,000 female veterans are homeless.
But that estimate is probably on the low side, according to Sara Scoco, who directs the Women's Program of the nonprofit group Soldier On.
"When people are doing homeless counts, they're going to shelters, they're seeing people on the street," Scoco said. "A female veteran is not the person you see on the street holding a sign."
