REDMOND, OR -- A 2-acre property in Redmond was recently sold to a couple that wants to turn it into veterans housing. Sean McGann says is he's partnering with COVO, Central Oregon Veterans Outreach and they say the need for veterans housing in the area is real. McGann says he learned the property was owned for decades by Bill Lance, a World War Two veteran, and that led to the idea to build cottages for veterans on the property. McGann says the Lance home could also be used for veterans to receive counseling or meet with Veterans Service Organizations about their needs and benefits. McGann says he doesn’t know how long it will take to complete the project because the money still needs to be raised.  McGann estimates they'll need $50,000  for the cottages, $100,000 for site development and $50,000 landscaping, etc. Anyone who wants to help can donate through Central Oregon Veterans Outreach at https://covo-us.org/veteran-programs/

The Project is called Shelter4Heroes.
