Foundations poured for Habitat for Humanity Veteran Community Center


Fort Hood Area Habitat for Humanity's Veteran Community is officially underway two years ahead of what was originally hoped for. 

This morning, crews were out pouring the foundation for the community center. 

The subdivision will house 26 veterans in 13 duplexes. 

Ken Cates says this neighborhood will be the first of its kind in the United States and hopes to eventually see others like it not only in Central Texas, but across the country. 

"Just to see it come together is amazing. I served 27 years in the military, and then to be able to turn around and serve in this capacity and continue serving the veterans that we know are forgotten. I'm at a loss for words. It's just, it's amazing to see it finally happening," Ken Cates, the CEO for the Fort Hood Area Habitat for Humanity, said. 

 On Saturday, they will be pouring the foundation for four of the 13 duplexes, and walls will start going up on Monday.

Volunteers are always needed.
