AMARILLO - The City of Amarillo is going to receive more than $100,000 to house 70 veterans in 2013, which is 20 more than 2012. The program is called Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH).
Another Chance House in Amarillo, which is contracted by the VA, says vets are given up to $450 a month making sure they have enough money to pay all their bills.
They currently have 14 vets living there thanks to the VASH program through the Housing and Urban Development.
Amarillo's Another Chance House Office Manager Bobby Nixon says, "We are actively seeking to acquire more property, which is adjacent to our existing property. And if we can do that, then that opens up the avenue to be able to build more duplexes for veterans. It's very vital in just making them know that they are loved, and that they are cared for."
