Facts about veterans
The National Low Income Housing Coalition finds that 2.5 million veterans heading households are at least 55 years of age. Of those 2.5 million veterans, 24% have housing cost burdens. Unlike our older civilians, our older veterans are more likely to have a disability – 35% versus 28% – which may require home modifications, health, and other supportive services as they age. Joplin Area Habitat for Humanity is proud to build new homes and make critical home repairs for veterans and their families.
