STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV)-- The project is already under way to renovate a house that will help the homeless. The Valley Area Community Support Inc., or VACSI, got a check from Bank of America to help with their project on Kalorama Street.

With the rent at $300, VACSI's executive director says the apartments will address a need specifically for folks coming out of homelessness.

"If you can get it down to $300 a month, including their utilities, we think I could get some of our people in. We've got a mission that's full of people who can't find housing that they can afford, and we're trying to make an impact on that," said Clarke Banta, a VACSI member.

The house will be renovated to create eight apartments. The project is expected to finish by the end of the year.
