Did you know that roughly 20% of homeless adults are Veterans?
Veterans are more than twice as likely as civilians to become homeless during their lifetimes. Right here in Western PA, there are literally hundreds of Veterans who are homeless at any given time.
Veterans Place of Washington Boulevard, or "Veterans Place," is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to ending homelessness among Veterans in the Pittsburgh region. Founded in 1996 and located in Pittsburgh's East End, we strive to provide a variety of supportive services for homeless Veterans in the Pittsburgh area. The goal of Veterans Place, working in partnership with the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System and other organizations, is to facilitate Veterans' transition from Homeless to Home, becoming engaged, valuable citizens who contribute to their communities.
