CNS helps provide housing to homeless veterans in Tennessee

Consolidated Nuclear Security’s donation of $25,000 to the Helen Ross McNabb Center’s Veterans Housing Project served as one of the final building blocks in the $1.83-million effort to provide permanent housing to homeless veterans who have mental illnesses.

The CNS donation helped fund the newly constructed Cedar Crossing apartment building in Knoxville, Tenn., which provides eight one-bedroom units. The second phase of the project is rehabilitating a former apartment complex that will provide another 15 apartment homes.

CNS assumed responsibility for management and operations at the Pantex Plant and the Y-12 National Security Complex last summer.
