• New program seeks to help homeless veterans


    BOSTON (AP) - A new program is expected to find housing for chronically homeless veterans in Boston.

    HomeStart Inc., a non-profit dedicated to ending homelessness in Greater Boston, says it is working with the city of Boston and the New England Center for Homeless Veterans. The program is expected to serve approximately 80 homeless veterans and their families through housing vouchers provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Veterans Administration.

    HomeStart will work with the center to connect veterans with housing options, as well as provide rental assistance, case management and clinical services.

    The center received an emergency solutions grant to rapidly house veterans who are struggling with complex challenges.
