An extensive survey released Tuesday by a coalition of nonprofits that serve veterans in the Dallas-Fort Worth area echoes what veterans encounter in other parts of the state and country: a lack of collaboration between community and county-level services, homelessness and the VA's shortage of well-woman specialists for female veterans.

The survey interviewed veterans, organized discussions of advocacy groups and analyzed data from the Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense. The results of the survey are available online.
