Retired Brigadier General Wilbur Wolf says, unfortunately, many homeless veterans have been left behind. But, the new community will turn that around.

“This place will allow them to find home again. It will bring them together with other veterans and to be able to do this on Veteran’s Day, to bring them back into the fold, to give them a home, is just going to be a wonderful thing,” Brig. Gen. Wolf said.

Thursday’s ceremony with elected leaders also kicked off the capital campaign for Veterans Outreach of Pennsylvania.
