Homeless veterans in Rowan County can now trade nights on the streets for their own apartments.
The Rowan County Housing Authority and the W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center are offering housing vouchers for qualifying veterans.
Rodney Cress, vice chairman of the Rowan County Housing Authority, will announce full details of the program at an 11 a.m. news conference Tuesday at the Housing Authority office, 310 Long Meadow Drive in the Southmark Corporate Center.
“We will be providing to veterans who are currently homeless a place where they can live, raise their families and get their lives turned around without having to worry about their next meal or a roof over their head,” said Cress, a decorated Vietnam War veteran.
See Tuesday’s Salisbury Post for full details.
