A nationwide five-year plan to end homelessness among veterans began in 2009.
Since then, the number of veterans on the streets has gone down by more than 17 percent.
"Now we are leading the nation in providing a program of support for female veterans who are in need of that support," said Abercrombie.
"This is a place that will give us a safe haven and be able to take care of the hurts. It's for women who have seen too much or have been hurt too much," said Klinch.
Women veterans are four times more likely to become homeless than non-service women.
The YWCA of Oahu says five veterans are already staying at Fernhurst and they have several more preparing to move there.
