A national nonprofit that helps cities address homelessness has purchased a Jacksonville apartment complex to provide permanent housing for homeless veterans.
New York-based Community Solutions paid $9.35 million for Caroline Village at 2929 Justina Road in Arlington, which has about 92 units, according to the nonprofit.
“As units turn over, vacancies will be first offered to veterans experiencing homelessness,” spokeswoman Anna Kim said. “The goal is to dedicate at least 50 percent of the units to veterans as Jacksonville works toward its goal of ending veteran homelessness.”
Veterans who live there will also receive supportive services. Purchase of a second facility in Jacksonville is in the works.
