BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - A housing project for homeless veterans has received a significant boost in funding thanks to the Ahearn Foundation.
Chairman Bob Ahearn presented the City of Binghamton with a $35,000 check.
The money will be used to complete construction of a $400,000 veterans housing complex located at 27 Pine Street.
The 10-unit complex will also offer case management and counseling services, and it's located in close proximity to the new VA clinic under construction.
Ahearn says veterans shouldn't have to worry about a place to stay after defending out freedom.
"These are the people that stepped up when America needed a little help. These people said they'll go over to wherever you need me and help out any way they can. Now, they've come back. These people saluted our flag and saluted our country and they need our help right now," he said.
The housing complex is looking to open in mid-spring.
