Terre Haute breaks ground on housing for homeless veterans

Terre Haute — Crews have broken ground on the first phase of a new western Indiana housing project designed specifically to house the region's homeless, disabled veterans.

Contractor Richard Jenkins tells the Tribune-Star that construction will begin within 10 days of Tuesday's groundbreaking in Terre Haute and should be completed in time for occupancy to begin this fall.

The $687,000 project being developed by United Cerebral Palsy of the Wabash Valley will erect three duplexes, each having two two-bedroom apartments for a total of six units. Each apartment also has two bathrooms, either for single veterans who want to split the rent with another veteran or for veterans with a family

A fourth duplex unit is also planned at the site, but will not be constructed in this first phase of development.
