LAS VEGAS (Kristyn Caddell, KSNV MyNews3) -- Providing services for our veterans -- either just back from duty or from wars past -- is critical to Las Vegas leaders.
One of the most important services is housing.
Those who have stepped up and are helping make that housing a reality are being recognized today.
Veterans Village Las Vegas, 1150 Las Vegas Blvd. South, the temporary housing and comprehensive resource facility for veterans and their families located in a repurposed Econo Lodge motel on Las Vegas Boulevard, dedicated rooms to recent room sponsors.
Ronnie and Dorit Schwartz and Oscar and Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman recently made donations to underwrite the renovation of rooms at Veterans Village and were recognized at a brief ceremony.
According to its news release, Veterans Village can provide housing and services for two veterans for one month at a cost of $700 or $8,400 for an entire year. The cost of adopting a veteran family of up to four people is $800 per month and $9,600 for one year.
In addition to a safe and clean residence, adopted veterans and their families receive food and clothing assistance, free transportation to the VA and medical facilities, unlimited internet, phone calls and weekly maid service.
