Final Salute Inc. was founded in 2010 by a Female Veteran and cancer survivor who became aware of the large number of homeless female Veterans. There are currently over 55,000 homeless female Veterans nationwide. Over half of all homeless female Veterans are single mothers. Final Salute Inc. was formed to fill a critical need for an organization that was actively engaged and designed to meet the evolving and unique needs of homeless Female Veterans and their children. While our Veterans are no longer serving on the front lines in foreign wars, our homeless female Veterans are at the back of the line when seeking housing and other supportive services.
Final Salute Inc. is the only organization in the DC Metro Area and only one of a handful across the nation that specifically supports the housing needs of homeless Female Veterans and their children. You can also support them through CFC#57897
