New Place to Call Home for Veterans

There is a new place to call home in southern Nevada for veterans. 

The non-profit group U.S. Vets opened a new housing facility Friday in hopes of getting more veterans out of homelessness. The group turned an old apartment complex near Sahara Avenue and Paradise Road into furnished apartments for veterans. It won't be just a place to live the facility will include services designed to help keep men and women who have served off the street. Programs like life-skill training, money management and counseling will be available through trained staff. U.S. Vets says the programs will focus on keeping veterans in their homes and independent.

Currently, U.S. Vets provides housing for 240 veterans the new facility will give a home to 25 more. It is part of the effort by Veterans Affairs to cut the number of homeless vets. The initiative was launched in 2009 and since then the number of homeless veterans has dropped from 150,000 to 75,000 across the country.
