NEW LONDON, Conn. (WTNH) -- Homeless veterans in New London now have a new place to stay.
Seven men are sharing a house bought by the New London Homeless Hospitality Center and the First Congregational church in Old Lyme.
It provides an affordable alternative for the veterans who have jobs but need to live in a roommate situation to afford a home.
"I think the important thing to remember is that there's vets at all different levels," Kathy Zall of the New London Homeless Hospitality Center said. "Some of whom have no income and face one type of homelessness but there's also people just like regular society who are earning a living but not really quite enough to afford a place."
Cathy Zall says the VA has also been very active in helping subsidize other housing for veterans.
There is a transitional house in New London for veterans who have not yet found work.
