Because She Served Too
2016 Charity of the Year
The mission of Final Salute Inc. is to provide homeless women Veterans with safe and suitable housing.
It is estimated that there are currently 55,000 homeless women Veterans in the United States on any given day. For the sacrifices they and their families have made, this is an unacceptable state for any of them to be in. Final Salute Inc. believes in paying women Veterans with the proper respects due to them for the service they have provided to our country. Final Salute also works with the Veteran in establishing her plan towards independence.
We were established to identify and meet the unique needs of homeless women Veterans.
"A recent report from the VA inspector general examining veteran housing that receive VA grants found bedrooms and bathrooms without locks, poorly lit hallways and women housed in facilities approved for men only. Nearly a third of the 26 facilities reviewed didn't have adequate safety precautions. One woman veteran and her 18-month-old son were placed in the same facility as a male veteran who was a registered sex offender." - AP
