“This federal funding will help address the unique needs of Oregon’s homeless female veterans” said Rep. Blumenauer. “Women who have served in combat face myriad challenges when they return to Oregon. This funding will make a needed difference for these brave women and their families.”

It is estimated that there are 25,226 women veterans in the state of Oregon.

“This will add a specific focus for female veterans into our existing Homeless Veterans Reintegration Project and expand that program,” said EV Armitage, Central City Concern’s Executive Coordinator.
