Homelessness among veterans has dropped in half since 2009


Homelessness among veterans in Hennepin County has dropped by about 53 percent since 2009, according to figures released by county officials today.

There were 126 homeless veterans counted last year, down from 267 in 2009, said Maria Elena Baca, a county spokeswoman. 

County leaders attribute the decrease to increased collaboration among government departments and private outreach organizations working on housing homeless veterans.
