Committed to Serving
Veteran Women and their Children
Why we do... What we do!
Texas is reported to have one of the largest populations of homeless veterans in the nation, constituting about 5% of the state's homeless population. Female veterans experiencing homelessness in Texas represent a significant portion of this population, indicating a pressing need for targeted support and resources. The Houston area's homeless veteran population faces challenges such as limited access to affordable housing, temporary shelter, hunger, and basic daily needs of veteran women and their children. BRTM understands that this calls for multifaceted interventions to address the unique needs of this demographic population adequately.
Homelessness among veterans, particularly women, remains a pressing issue in the United States. Despite numerous projects, initiatives and support programs, the statistics surrounding homeless veteran women reveal an ongoing challenge that demands urgent attention. Blessed R Thee Ministry acknowledges on the severity of the issue and compel action in support of resolving these immediate problems faced by veteran women and their children in the Houston and Dallas, Texas metropolitan areas.
According to the most recent national statistics, approximately 8% of the U.S. homeless population comprises veterans, with an estimated 40,000 homeless veterans on any given night. Shockingly, women veterans are the fastest-growing segment of the homeless veteran population, accounting for 8-9% of the total veteran homeless population. Moreover, about 10% of homeless female veterans are single mothers, facing additional challenges in accessing stable housing and essential services.
Blessed R Thee Ministry’s mission aligns with the urgent need to support homeless veteran women. Your support and partnership are pivotal in enabling Blessed R Thee Ministry’s “She Served” Program to continue its mission and make a tangible difference in the lives of these brave women. Our goal is to restore dignity and empower these courageous individuals who have served our country.
