Homeless veterans in Redding will soon have a place to rest their heads. The City Council has approved an agreement with the Veterans Resource Center of America to help finance a home on Park Marina Drive in the amount of $355,000. The money will come from home funds which the City uses to provide transitional housing. The home would provide counseling and job training as well as other case management for 12 homeless veterans.
The council also approved up to $625,000 from the same fund to help with rehabilitation of the Lorenz Hotel downtown, which provides housing for seniors and disabled.
