An Orange County organization is receiving state assistance to jump-start a solution to veteran homelessness.
The idea was proposed by the Rumshock Veterans Foundation. Developers are searching for land to build a "Victory Village" for homeless veterans.
Today, Sen. Jen Metzger announced that $400,000 in state funding would be granted to buy land and help start the tiny home initiative.
“It’s not just a permanent housing solution, it’s creating a supportive community for our veterans, many who live in isolation,” says Sen. Metzger. “It’s providing access to transportation, employment readiness and all the services they need.” 
As of now, there is no word on where the tiny home veteran village will be.
