He or she does have to make sure that they have the paper work that they will need to process to make sure they are eligible for these programs. They want to know their income, how many people in the household. Most of all of these homeless can receive food stamps and other government assistance. In my previous assignment I wrote about Homeless Veterans. VA have many benefits and services to assist homeless veterans. They have disability benefits, health care, education; residential care, rehabilitation services, and compensated work therapy are also among the services they offer to eligible veterans. They have program for homeless veterans all over the world. The only ones who are in shelters or living on the street because they do not want help from these organizations.

But I also read somewhere when I was doing research that most of all of these veterans are eligible for these benefits without paying too much. Most of these veterans cannot pay money out of pocket because they also have to take care of their families. None of these programs are overutilization or underutilization because the veterans need to make sure that they understand all of the rules.

    Homelessness is usually defined as “a person who lacks a fixed regular and adequate night time residence ”(Facts and figures: The homelessness). Homelessness in the United States is very common. If you are walking on the streets of New York or any city in United States it is almost certain that you will see a person or several persons that are sleeping on the street corner or in the subway station. This has always been a major concern for the government. The US government is trying its best to keep people off the street and there are over 3000 homeless shelters in America.

    In my research thus far I have found there are many reasons why a veteran as well as anyone becomes homeless. Mostly they are economical, mental, physical (health wise) drug and alcohol abuses are the main reasons. Research studies indicate that in the veteran population younger veterans are becoming homeless, which was a great surprise to me. The conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan are causing many of these issues. Another group of homeless are the older veterans and their reasons are similar to the younger veterans, most of them have been out of the military for quite sometime but because of never getting any treatment when they were discharged they had a hard time adjusting to life after the military.…

    According to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV), nearly 200,000 American Veterans are homeless on any given night (Rieckhoff). NCHV - the resource and technical assistance center - reported that the number of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) - (OEF) veterans are becoming homeless much more quickly than Vietnam veterans. As the war in Iraq and Afghanistan continues the number of homeless veterans increases. The next generation of American Veterans is on its way home, and tens of thousands more will return from combat over the years to come. Upon returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan thousands of veterans are facing a new nightmare, the risk of homelessness.…

    Our Veterans, the ones who serve in the United States Military, have fought for our country and others. They have served us well by leaving their families behind and venturing off into unknown lands like Iraq and Afghanistan to make us proud of them. We call them Heroes until they return home. Our Heroes return safely home from death and destruction only to be made aware that they are no different from anyone else. Well if our Veterans are treated as anyone else than homelessness will not discriminate.…

    Another government organization known simply as the VA program is suppose to provide jobs and other services like health care to veterans. In a recent assessment of the VA program, it was revealed that the systems in place to help veterans are not receiving sufficient attention. The organization seems unable to handle the imminence amount of cases refereed to them. The VA program's failures also have indirect consequences to those they serve. In a recent study by the "Center for a New American Study" new statistics revealed that we are losing the battle against veteran suicide. Startling results show that every 80 minutes a veteran commit's suicide. In 2011, 20% of all suicides in the United States were that of veterans. Many of those who thought about suicide said it stemmed from feelings of uselessness when they return home, from combat. The primary subject of "Veterans Jobs Corps Act of 2012" was to tackle these feelings of uselessness by giving job opportunities to veterans appropriate to their skills. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that presently the unemployment rate for veterans who served in Iraq…

    The societal problem that I’m studying is Homeless Veterans and how they affect our society. Homeless veterans affect many aspects of society: According to the SLO Homeless web site, the economic impact, operating and maintaining homeless support services programs such as homeless shelters, day centers, homeless medical services and so forth are costly ventures. Is never enough funds to cover every single homeless veteran, this in turn means that many homeless are forced to seek alternate methods of getting their basic needs met. Subsequently, those homeless who cannot find employment will turn to recycling or panhandling as a means of putting money in their pockets. There is also an environmental impact that homeless…

    Over 2 million Veterans are suffering from medical, physical, psychological, emotional, and social effects as the result of war. All of which are taking a tremendous toll on our veterans, their families, and our society. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) spends billions of dollars every year to help our Veterans and yet huge gaps in service and support remain. Inadequate medical care, a huge backlog of VA claims, limited treatment programs, and executive malfeasance plague the VA. These and other deficiencies in the “system” are putting our veterans at further risk. The rate of veteran suicide has reached epidemic proportions! Too many Veteran charities are taking advantage of donors and current laws governing the management and operations…
