Over 2,000,000 female Veterans have served with honor since the Revolutionary War.
Over 40,000 female Veterans deployed in support of Operation Desert Storm.
Of the 200,000+ female Veterans that deployed in support of the Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom (OIF/OEF) Campaigns, more than 600 have been wounded and over 100 have been killed.
It is estimated that there are currently 13,000 homeless female Veterans in the United States. For the sacrifices they and their families have made, this is an unacceptable state for any of them to be in.
Heroes should not be homeless.
According to a study on Veteran Homelessness conducted by HUD and the VA in 2009:
Female Veterans are more likely to be homeless than their male counterparts.
Female Veterans are also more likely to be homeless when compared to female non-veterans in the U.S. and female non-veterans in the poverty population.
Female Veterans with dependents account for 59% of the total number of sheltered Veterans with families, but only account for 10% of the total homeless Veteran population.
Our goal is to raise $5000. Sounds like an ambitious goal - it is!! But you can help!
Come out and ride to support a very worthwhile cause.
