Construction for disabled veteran housing is right on schedule


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Just a month ago, News 10 brought you the story of one Wabash Valley organization expanding their services.

United Cerebral Palsy of the Wabash Valley continues to work on providing services to the ones who served our country. UCP broke ground on the three duplex housing project in June.

Now, construction is about halfway through, and moving along right on schedule.

“It’s been great progress so far,” says Martina Thompson, veteran services coordinator, “We’re just really excited to provide homeless veterans housing in the Wabash Valley”.

Three duplexes will be built, each will hold two bedroom units. Each unit will have two bedrooms and two bathrooms. In total, the units will host up to 12 disabled veterans and their families.

Thompson says so far two veterans have met the criteria and are approved to move in once completion is reached.

Work on the housing units is expected to be finished by the end of October.

Veterans must be diagnosed with a disability by the VA, or disabled through an incident happening outside the VA, in order to be considered for housing.

For more information, and how to apply for housing, call the UCP office at 812-232-6305. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
