Final Salute Inc. was founded in 2010 by a woman Veteran and cancer survivor who became aware of the large number of homeless women Veterans in the United States. She realized a need for an organization that was designed to meet and understand the unique needs of homeless women Veterans and their children. There are no longer front lines in war, however, female Veterans feel they are put at the end of line when seeking housing and other supportive services.
Over 2,000,000 women have served with honor since the Revolutionary War. They have fulfilled their obligations to their country; we now need to support them during their time of need. With the help of the American people, foundation and corporate supporters, we know our mission is achievable.
Why are we doing this? Because it’s the right thing to do.
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. Final Salute also works with the Veteran in establishing her plan towards independence.
