Sadowski Funds Serve Those Who Served Our Country
Post-9/11 veterans are more likely to be unemployed than veterans from earlier conflicts. In Florida, 11% of veterans aged 18 to 34 years are unemployed (United Way of FL ALICE Report).
50% of Florida’s veterans are 65 years or older (United Way of FL ALICE Report). As these veterans age and retire, they are more likely to have trouble paying for property taxes, home repairs, and accessibility retrofits.
Florida had 4,552 homeless veterans on a single night in 2014—the highest homeless veteran population in any state (HUD Point-in-Time Count data).
