TULSA, Okla. — A Green Country veteran is welcomed home after months of homelessness.
John Reeves is one of the first veterans to move into an apartment under the Volunteers of America Transition in Place program.
What Reeves is most excited about is having a warm and safe place to stay. “It's been cold, as you know. So, the challenges of sleeping outside adds to it,” Reeves said. “Last night, there was a storm. I'm still drying off from that."
The grant funding the Transition in Place program was awarded in October and provides $1 million over the next three years in housing for approximately 100 veterans experiencing homelessness in Tulsa.
