A nonprofit that helps homeless female veterans in Georgia

This is not freedom, this is being in bondage

>>SLATE: Margaret and her team are on a mission

[music]

To build a first-of-its-kind transitional housing facility in middle Georgia expressly for homeless female veterans (the fastest growing segment of homeless veterans)

Retired military Captain Colleen Baker is helping

>>COLLEEN: There’s upstairs and downstairs in this two-story

[old building, new framing being shown inside]

[music]

We’re putting in laundry facilities, a conference room

The library’s going to be in here, I’m trying to remember what else, oh and kitchen facilities

>>SLATE: Colleen will be 1 of 14 women living in this housing
