VETERANS PROGRAM

At CABA Pro Bono Legal Services, we understand that veterans are underserved and neglected members of society who are often reluctant to seek legal help. We’re here to help promote self-sufficiency and stability through various comprehensive and accessible legal services. If you are a veteran in need of legal assistance, please call us today.

The Facts

  • Legal assistance needs rank higher than housing among the top unmet needs of homeless veterans, according to the US Interagency Council on Homelessness.
  • Veterans are 8% of the general population but between 25% and 30% of the homeless population.
  • While there are Veterans experiencing homelessness in every state, nearly one-third reside in just two states, California (24.5%) and Florida
  •  (7.4%), according to Point-in-Time (PIT) estimates.
  • The average cost of a single homeless person on society is $40,000 per year, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
