Groundbreaking ceremony for new homeless veterans facility in Camden

Please note correction: Tuesday, March 27.

The Volunteers of America Delaware Valley will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for Home for the Brave, a 30-bed facility with housing and support services for homeless veterans.

The center, at 271 Atlantic Ave., adjacent to the VOA’s transitional living Aletha Wright Center, is expected to be complete in early fall.

Home of the Brave will offer intensive case management for homeless veterans, including job training and placement, substance abuse treatment, mental health treatment, and health care.

The program will also offer a mentoring program in which incoming veterans become mentors to future program participants.

The ceremony will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 27, at 271 Atlantic Ave.
