Description

"Up until 2011, neither the VA or HUD even counted homeless women veterans as a homeless population. They didn't even know that they existed or tracked them!" Our featured guest today is Jas Boothe. Fmr. Army Major Jas Boothe is a Chicago Native, Disabled Veteran, Cancer Survivor, Filmmaker and Speaker who gave over 17 years of service to this great nation. Jas Boothe is the President and Founder of Final Salute Inc (www.finalsaluteinc.org); providing homeless women Veterans with safe and suitable housing. Final Salute Inc is the only non-profit in the DC Metro are that specifically supports the unique housing needs of homeless female veterans and their children; there are currently 55,000 homeless female Veterans nationwide. Jas founded Final Salute Inc. due to her life being torn apart by Hurricane Katrina, homelessness and cancer in 2005. Jas was a single mother in the Army Reserves who was headed to Iraq. Due to her efforts and tireless advocacy, Final Salute Inc has raised over 3 million dollars, supported over 5,000 women Veterans and children and provided over 12,600 days of housing since 2011.
