BENEFITING: FINAL SALUTE
I AM A WOMAN. I SERVE. I AM A FEMALE VETERAN!
Every day women across this nation wear the uniform to protect and serve this nation. However, some return from service without a home, without support, and without benefits deserving of America's Heroes. The mission of Final Salute Inc. is to provide homeless women Veterans with safe and suitable housing.
It is estimated that there are currently 55,000 homeless women Veterans in the United States on any given day. For the sacrifices they and their families have made, this is an unacceptable state for any of them to be in. Final Salute Inc. believes in paying women Veterans with the proper respects due to them for the service they have provided to our country.
On December 23, 2011, the U.S. Government Accountability Office reported "More than 60 percent of surveyed Grant Per Diem (GPD) programs that serve homeless women veterans did not house children, and most programs that did house children had restrictions on the ages or numbers of children. ...Limited housing for women and their children puts these families at risk of remaining homeless".
The needs of homeless female Veterans are immediate. They need your support today!
