SHELBYVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - One year since the groundbreaking for a tiny home community for homeless veterans, the project is getting back on track after the pandemic forced shutdowns and restrictions.
Veterans Club Inc. announced on March 3, their non-profit obtained ownership of operations and programs for the Veterans Village project in Shelbyville. That project was created through a collaboration by Awake Ministries, Veterans Rural Outreach and CrossRoads Missions.
The newly owned project will run concurrently with Camp Restoration in south Louisville, Veterans Club’s original project to help homeless veterans and get them back on their feet.
Jeremy Harrell, founder of Veterans Club Inc., said the project will allow homeless veterans several opportunities to ensure their needs are met and that they can be well equipped for a life of independence.
“The whole goal for our program and this initiative is to equip veterans through education, through supportive groups, through getting them connected to treatment, career transition,” Harrell told WAVE 3 News.
Veterans Village in Shelbyville currently has six available spaces for any veteran in the state who wishes to apply for a room. One space is currently open now, and two others will be open by the end of March.
