Project to house homeless female vets in Ford Heights

A shuttered housing development in the far south suburbs may soon become a source of hope for local veterans. It might even help breathe new life into a community and the person behind the project says she just wants to help.

With the help of volunteers, clean-up is underway at what is slated to become the Smith Residences Veterans Village in Ford Heights. It will house homeless female veterans. It looks rough now, but Doll Smith has a grand plan for it.
