VIRGINIA BEACH-It will be a Stars and Stripes Affair later this month for a group that helps homeless veterans in Hampton Roads. 

Vetshouse, Inc. is a 12-month program that provides contemporary living quarters in a group environment, assistance in job hunting, transportation, personal skills and development guidance.

The organization says there are about 2500 homeless veterans in our community right now and that one out of every four homeless persons here is a military veteran.

Vetshouse has been in operation since 1992 and has helped more than 500 homeless veterans.

The fundraiser is June 29 at the Doubletree by Hilton in Va. Beach beginning at 5:00 p.m.
