Homeless Veteran and Wife Find Permanent Housing through Pineville Housing Authority
Pineville Mayor Signs on to Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness
Daniel Keck, a homeless veteran, and his newlywed Stacy, dreamed of having a home to call their own for months. After their long search, they eventually contacted the Pineville Housing Authority, which has a preference in place to house homeless veterans, and within a week their dream came true. Now that they have a permanent home, they are pursuing their education full time to ensure that they are able to become employed and self-sufficient.
HUD Kentucky Field Office Director Christopher Taylor recently visited Pineville to congratulate the Keck's at their new home and to present them with a Welcome mat along with Mayor Scott Madon and Pineville Housing Authority Executive Director Mary Ann Robbins, who is very committed to serving our veterans because she herself is a veteran.
Making the day extra special was Mayor Madon's announcement that he was joining the Mayors Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness. He has been very impressed with Ms. Robbins' dedication to the cause and is excited to be among the Kentucky mayors leading this initiative.
"The Kecks are certainly fortunate to have the support of Mary Ann Robbins, Executive Director of the Pineville Housing Authority, who is a veteran herself and understands that some veterans come back to no home of their own after they have served our country," said Taylor. "And we are so proud to have Mayor Scott Madon join the Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness. It takes the dedication and commitment of both our elected officials and our community leaders to ensure that we will have long term success with keeping all of our veterans permanently housed."
