In early 2018 during the annual Point-In-Time Count, 37,878 homeless veterans across the United States were counted.
With just under 11,000, California easily topped all states with the most homeless veterans in the country with the next being Florida, at just over 2,500.
While the overall number of homeless veterans did go down in America, San Diego City and County was the only major area to see a significant increase at 23 percent from the previous year.
Even more alarming is that with 1,312 – if San Diego County was its own state – it would have more homeless veterans than 45 states and the District of Columbia.
