Local homeless veterans now have place to turn, to get off the street and work to rebuild their lives.

The non-profit Asset Building Network held a grand opening for its House of Glory. ASN provides housing for homeless veterans who have been diagnosed with mental illness.

"I'm looking for a stable life, somewhere I can live. I don't have to live in the street, I don't have to worry about anything, you know getting my bills paid, and get back to where I was. And it's been hard and this is a blessing," one homeless person told us.

"We want this community to support our heroes who have served our country," said Glory Udoh, Founder and Exec Director of ASN.

The veterans will receive housing for six to 12 months.

House of Glory has 15 units open now, and hopes to open up 10 more next week.
