A new apartment building on the St. Cloud VA Health Care System campus aims to provide permanent housing for veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
The Linden Grove Veteran Apartments on 12th Avenue North has 37 furnished apartments, including studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. It was a public-private partnership between the VA and the lead developer, Sand Companies of Waite Park.
The apartments won’t be reserved exclusively for veterans, although veterans will be given priority, said Barry Venable, spokesman for the St. Cloud VA.”We think there’s going to be ample demand to fill these apartments with veterans,” Venable said.
