Ten units will be reserved for formerly homeless veterans.

“It’s been very important to the housing authority and the City of Aurora to help house homeless veterans. There’s a lot of veterans in the City of Aurora, so we just feel it’s a natural fit,” said Aurora Housing Authority Exec. Director Craig Maraschky.
