SACRAMENTO -- In a combined effort that includes Volunteers of America Northern California and Nevada chapters, along with HomeAid Sacramento and more than 40 companies' time and material, as well as corporate sponsorship, 11 veterans and those vets with families will soon have a place to live.

A soon to be completed two-building apartment complex call the "Dealynne Street Project" features the two bedroom apartments in Sacramento.

"There is a very large need to help veterans and their families who are struggling after returning from service," Christie Holderegger, with Volunteers of America, told FOX40.

The project has been two years in the making and is expected to be finished in January costing more than $800,000 to build.

The veterans will be coming from Sacramento,Yolo, El Dorado and Placer counties.

They have yet to be selected, and are expected to move in sometime in January.
