Nonprofit aims to serve homeless veterans in Easton

VIDEO: Nonprofit 'My Brother's House'...

EASTON, Pa. - A house on Northampton Street in Easton will soon be better than ever for local veterans who are down on their luck.

Dr. Remolia Simpson, an Army veteran and counselor, says she started the non-profit called My Brother's House, as a way to help serve the city's population of homeless veterans.

Simpson says an estimated 14 percent of homeless people in Easton have served in the military.

"As a veteran, I feel like it is my duty and part of my responsibility to make sure that I can do whatever I can to make sure our veterans aren't homeless,” Simpson said.

Simpson says the home is not a shelter and several veterans or one family can live in the house at one time, receive counseling, and get back on their feet.

The Home Depot Foundation helped renovate the home’s bathrooms and backyard.

Members of the Home Depot Foundation said in the weeks leading up to Veteran's Day, they look for projects that serve veteran-related organizations.

If you’d like to donate to My Brother’s House, you can find more information on their website.
