MILFORD, Del.- Causey Avenue in Milford could soon be getting some new neighbors. After a failed attempt earlier this year, Home of the Brave is trying again to open a transitional housing facility for homeless women who have served in the military.

The home would hold up to eight occupants, which could be a mix of women and children. Neighbors WBOC spoke with say they would welcome the new neighbors.

"I think it's fine, we should do everything we can for veterans," Ed Pettit said.

Home of the Brave will be leasing the home from "God's Way to Recovery."

"They approached us and said they had a house that was already outfitted with the proper coding, it has a sprinkler system inside of it, the fire suppression system. so it's basically ready to go, it's ready for a group home already," Jessica Finnan, the executive director of Home of the Brave said.

Kevin Lewis lives down the street from the home and said the neighborhood is used to having a transitional housing facility in the area.

"They used to have a place right there for the men, so I don't see where it would be a problem to have women there, that would be my opinion," Lewis said.

Home of the Brave is currently negotiating the lease for the home and is hoping to have female veterans in the home this winter.
