HIGHLAND PARK - Many veterans gathered for the dedication of a new homeless shelter for vets in Highland Park today.

All Saints Apartments was launched in an effort called "bring them home to homes." The town says it hopes the project inspires others like it.

Christine Reece is a veteran who will live in the new building. Reece served in the Middle East during Desert Storm and came back to a job as a nurse until severe post-traumatic stress left her unable to work.

The veterans that move in will have fully furnished apartments thanks to donations.
