Veterans Housing

Veterans in Horry County could be seeing free housing.
The local non-profit Providing Hope Va helps veterans in Horry County to find housing. They want to expand its facility so they can build temporary housing for them.
“These people served our country and what I’m able to enjoy and what I’m able to enjoy, what you’re able to enjoy and what our children are able to enjoy is because of their sacrifices,” Threatte said. “And they don’t know when their next meal will be or where they are going to sleep at night.”
The homeless veterans would be able to stay until they found their own housing,most live in hotels and pay for as long as they can. The new facility would include apartments,doctor offices,classrooms and kitchens for them to use.
“Most veteran housing requires good credit, so a lot of people are denied access to housing because we didn’t have time to build our credit while fighting a war,” Green said.
Providing Hope Va is currently waiting for the city of Loris to approve their request. Once they get the approval they will help get veterans out of overly priced motels and off the streets, they hope to be in the new facility next year.
“Without veteran’s assistance, I wouldn’t be here. I would probably be homeless, they changed my life completely,” Austin said.
In looking to the future hopefully our veterans can get off the streets and get the care they deserve. Taking care of the people who have given us our freedom should be a main priority.
