PEORIA - A new home in Peoria is giving our veterans hope for the future.
The South Side Office of Concern officially held a ribbon cutting and open house for their Veteran's Haven.
It's at 711 Monroe Street in Peoria.
The haven is an adult living center for homeless veterans with mental illness.
It's a place they can find shelter and comfort as they get back on their feet.
Michael Gregg, a veteran told us, “I had it all and lost it. I'm getting back a little at a time. Like I said, it's helping out.”
Jeff Gross from the South Side Office of Concern told us, “By the end of the week, we'll have 10 guys living here. That's 10 guys that won't be living in a shelter. 10 guys that won't be living on the streets or whatever else and getting an opportunity to turn their lives around.”
Veterans will get resources they need to find affordable housing, and other programs to help them re-enter society, successfully.
