Culpeper $625,000 Homeless Shelter

April 4, 2007

A couple in Culpeper County is planning on turning a $625,000 property in to a homeless shelter in the Brandy Station area of Culpeper County.

Mark and Yolanda Deane want to help veterans who need a place to stay or someone to talk to. The home is located about five miles from the downtown area near the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Homeless veterans could either get job training or treatment for addictions said Yolanda. They plan on calling the development "Compassion House."

Mark, a contractor, built the four bedroom home with a fireplace, and a jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom. Culpeper Supervisor Bill Chase, whose district includes the shelter doesn't think that the Deanes will have any problem.
