In Vermont, an estimated 125 veterans are homeless on any given night.  And the Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that only one in ten veterans accesses available services. But Vermont is slowly expanding its transitional housing for vets, and is also looking for ways to prevent homelessness for soldiers now returning from current conflicts.
