08/10/2010 – A local non-profit that provides a home for dozens of vets is behind on its mortgage payment and if money doesn’t come soon, the apartment complex could shut down leaving many of its tenants homeless.
For the last five years, the local charity has been providing permanent housing in Northeast Albuquerque for mentally disabled vets who otherwise wouldn’t have a place to live. Now, the organization is $160,000 dollars behind on its mortgage and in danger of shutting down.
Thirty-seven mentally disabled veterans call the apartments home. Some of them used to be homeless.
Rest below fold.
