Affordable housing for veterans, seniors opens in Newport Beach

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- Newport Beach celebrated the opening of new affordable housing for homeless veterans and low income seniors.

A ribbon cutting ceremony made it official Thursday.

The cove apartments feature 12 newly updated one-bed units.

Community development partners acquired the formerly rundown apartment complex and completed extensive upgrades, even building a community garden.

The $6.6 million project provides permanent affordable and supportive housing for a segment of the population that is often forgotten.
