The guide, “The Trauma-Informed Care for Women Veterans Experiencing Homelessness:
A Guide for Service Providers,” was introduced at the Women in Military Service for America Memorial Theater at Arlington National Cemetery.“As the number of women veterans increases, we need to provide better, more tailored tools to support them as they transition back into civilian life,” Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis said.
“This guide acknowledges the experiences and challenges facing women veterans, and will result in better assistance and better outcomes for these deserving women.
”The female veteran population is estimated to grow from 1.8 million in 2010 to 2.1 million by 2036, according to the guide, referencing theU.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.
