Home Veterans



There are over 50,000 veterans living in Brooklyn. These brave men and women exemplify the meaning of service and sacrifice, and that is why my office is committed to advancing their general welfare with the support and resources they deserve.

Unfortunately, the needs of veterans are great across the country. Twenty-three percent of the homeless population in the United States is veterans and as we bring to a close the longest-running war in United States history, more must be done to address reintegrating veterans into society and availing them of the mental health and community services they need to do so successfully.
