By The Associated Press
NEW ALBANY — A new housing center that’s set to open in southern Indiana will provide shelter to homeless veterans trying to get back on their feet.
Liberty Place opens Friday in New Albany, with space for 16 homeless veterans or those facing the prospect of becoming homeless.
Kaiser Home Support Services, Inc., which helps provide home care for seniors and people with disabilities, will operate the housing.
The News and Tribune reports that Liberty Place will be a safe place for veterans working to turn their lives around. Their monthly fees will be paid through pension or disability payments.
One of the first residents will be U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Mark Shannon Roberts Jr. The 43-year-old with Huntington’s disease says “just being here, it just shows how much you are loved.”
