MOVING: These military veterans served their country. Now they’ll live in the Village of Valor.
The project, designed to house low-income veterans, secured a burst of financing on Tuesday when the Palm Beach County Commission approved $2 million toward the $31 million proposed rental complex.
Fundraisers have gathered $27 million toward the project; the county’s $2 million will be delivered after Village of Valor raises the remaining $2 million, according to the agreement with the county.
The village will include 130 apartments and 18 townhomes, with offices for social workers, Veterans Administration staffers and other providers who will encourage the integration into society of former military men and women who often feel forsaken.
I hope this lives up to expectations.
