Eye on the world: Finding home for veterans

In “US veteran homelessness slashed in half: What's behind the decline?The Christian Science Monitor reports that America’s veterans are disproportionally affected by homelessness. “However, a coordinated effort on the part of federal, state, and local governments, as well as veteran advocacy groups, has started to make a significant dent in the problem of veteran homelessness,” the Monitor writes. The statistics, published this summer in a report by the Obama administration, reveal that veteran homelessness has decreased by 47 percent since 2010. As this progress is celebrated, “a continued effort is necessary to continue to identify veterans who become homeless.”
