Apartments In Ohio Being Remodeled For Homeless Veterans

remodeledCAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) – Volunteers in Campbell, Ohio began remodeling two apartments on Delmar Avenue on Saturday for veterans that don’t have a home.

Four veterans will be moving into them, rent free, once they’re done. The goal of the project is to help the veterans get on their feet. After that, the next step is moving them into permanent housing once they are more stable.

Iron Soup Historical Preservation is an organization that works to remodel abandoned homes in Campbell. They have invested thousands of dollars on these two apartments to not only help veterans, but to make historical neighborhoods more attractive.

The neighborhood was full of modern apartments almost 100 years ago. Now the plan is to turn the nearly 160 apartments around, and build a veteran community.

“There are all kinds of units around here,” said Executive Director Linda Gens. “They can all be rehabbed and it doesn’t take much money.”
