Final Salute, Inc. (FSI) was founded in 2010 by a female veteran and cancer survivor who became aware of the large number of homeless female veterans in the United States. She realized a need for an organization that was designed to meet and understand the unique needs of homeless female veterans and their children. There are no longer front lines in war; however, female veterans feel they are put at the end of line when seeking housing and other supportive services. The FSI mission to provide homeless female veterans with safe and suitable housing is three fold:

  • Bring attention to the American people that homelessness among female veterans is on the rise and their support needs are immediate
  • Provide housing/supportive services to homeless female veterans and aiding in the prevention of homelessness for at-risk female veterans
  • Instill in homeless female veterans that their situations are temporary and their goals are still achievable

Currently there are over 13,000 homeless female veterans in the US. For the sacrifices they and their families have made, this is an unacceptable state for any of them to be in. Final Salute Inc. believes in paying female veterans with the proper respects due to them for the service they have provided to our country. FSI works with the female veteran in establishing her plan towards independence. FSI is doing this because it’s the right thing to do.

FSI program offer the following:

  • Transitional housing and subsidy assistance to homeless female veterans and their children
  • Integrate veterans back into local communities
  • Collaborate with our resource partners and supportive services to assist female veterans in reaching their goals
  • Provide rent, deposit and utility assistance to all female veterans to ease financial hardships
