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.
