PUEBLO — A new building in Pueblo is aimed at helping people who are down on their luck.

Health Solutions, The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office, and the VA have teamed up to start a permanent supportive housing project.

The project consists of a 35-unit building to help those experiencing homelessness, and connect them with resources to help get them back on their feet.

"You need a place that is right for everybody at the right time to get them to a place of stability and function financially and a be a productive stable person in your community," said Teah Miller from Health Solutions.

The building will be located near Health Solutions in the Belmont Area. Construction is expected to be complete by next spring.
