Department of Labor’s Women’s Bureau Releases Results of Listening Sessions with Women Veterans

August 30, 2011

From August 5 through September 10, 2009, the Department of Labor’s Women’s Bureau hosted a series of 28 moderated listening sessions with women Veterans experiencing homelessness or who formerly experienced homelessness, and service providers to this population, in New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Kansas, California, Oregon, and Washington. The sessions focused on obtaining information related to four themes:

• Factors that lead to homelessness for women veterans
• Improving services/resources for homeless women veterans
• Increasing participation and engagement in programs/services
• The role of the military and the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) in combating homelessness among women veterans
