Fourth District Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) made a visit to Columbia Monday and took a tour of one of the city’s homeless veteran shelters.

Shelter Insurance will donate $450,000 to a project to build an apartment complex and temporary homeless shelter for veterans in Columbia called Patriot Place.  

The plan is to renovate the former Deluxe Inn on Business Loop 70 East into a campus with 25 on-site apartments and a temporary homeless shelter. There will also be space for case management and support services.
