As of 2015, there were nearly 50,000 homeless veterans in the United States. Because this subset population is registered with the VMAC, they are often easier to contact and assist. The VMAC and other veterans programs also provide resources specific to veterans that non-veteran people experiencing homelessness may not have access to. Because of this, many cities have focused first on eliminating veteran homelessness altogether – with a high degree of success. Veterans are a more straightforward population to target, with more quantifiable and measurable results.
