Black Hawk County VA Partners with Goodwill to Lease Home for Homeless Veterans

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The Black Hawk County VA is teaming up with Goodwill to help homeless veterans get back on their feet.

Goodwill Industries of Northeast Iowa has leased a four bedroom home for homeless veterans in Cedar Falls.

The first tenant is already moving in.

20-year-old Timothy Hogan was diagnosed with PTSD and struggled to find a place to live after coming back to Iowa.

Hogan says the home is a fresh start.

"I was in a shelter worrying about where my next meal is going to come from, where I was going to sleep," Hogan said. "It means a lot to me."

Three other veterans will join Hogan later this month.
