A South Florida group is looking for more than $2 million to help homeless veterans in our community. 

Stand Down  has embarked on a new initiative to provide safe and affordable housing for vets but they need the public's help to break ground on Village of Valor, a new housing facility equipped with 157 apartments and townhomes.

The Village of Valor is a place where veterans and their families will be able to live, pay reduced rent and have access to much-needed services. Stand Down's founder Roy Foster says he needs the community to pitch in.

“A dollar, $2, whatever you can give we ask that you give it today and I assure you the community at large will greatly benefit," Foster said.

So far the organization has raised $28 million of their $31 million goal.
