Louisville Homeless Veterans' Group Receives Housing Grant

Volunteers of America in Kentucky will soon have an extra $77,000 to help address the housing needs of Louisville-area veterans.

The Courier-Journal reports the Home Depot Foundation grant will improve transitional housing for homeless veterans at the agency's campus in Louisville. Agency officials say the housing needs new windows, which are in disrepair and not energy-efficient. The agency is making improvements on the 80,000-square-foot north wing of the building to provide a minimum of 10 transitional beds for homeless veterans.
