HARRISBURG, Pa. — There are over 38,000 homeless veterans in the United States, including 35 on any given night in Dauphin County alone.
That's according to Veterans Outreach of Pennsylvania, a nonprofit working to address the issue with a first-of-its-kind project in South Harrisburg.
“There’s nothing in the state of Pennsylvania like what we’re doing right now," said Thomas Zimmerman, co-founder and chair of Veterans Outreach of Pennsylvania.
The construction of Veterans Grove is moving right along.
It's set to become a village of 15 to 20 tiny homes, which will provide temporary housing for homeless veterans in the Harrisburg region.
