My name is Lily Casura
and I am conducting an independent research project (this survey) into the housing difficulties U.S. women veterans may experience after completing their military service. This survey has been reviewed by and has received university Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval. The goal of my research is to attempt to fill a gap in knowledge about how and why women veterans may experience periods of housing instability and what accommodations they make during these periods of precarious housing. This survey was designed with the cooperation and input of women veterans who have been or are currently experiencing homelessness and are advocates for the women veterans community. My goal is to highlight issues that some but not all women veterans experience with housing instability after military service.
