Soldier On Initiative to aid homeless vets will be explained Thursday in Meredith

MEREDITH — A Soldier On presentation by Cathy Bentwood and Alex Ray which will  be held Thursday, March 28 at American Legion Post #33 on  Plymouth St., Meredith, from 6:30-7:15 p.m.
Hosted by Jeanie Forrester and Carol Gerken, the event will provide an opportunity to learn more about helping veterans transition from homelessness to home ownership.
Soldier On is a private nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness. Since 1994, the organization has been providing homeless veterans with transitional housing and supportive services.
In 2010, Soldier On opened the first Gordon H. Mansfield Veterans Community, a permanent housing cooperative that provides formerly homeless veterans with safe, sustainable, affordable housing.
This housing model is being replicated nationally, as Soldier On continues to change the end of the
story for homeless veterans throughout the country.
