WINSTON-SALEM - Seeing veterans on the street without a home broke a Piedmont pastor's heart, so he decided to do something about it.

Pastor Barry Washington is the Executive Director of "Whole Man Ministries," a non-profit organization in Winston-Salem.

The organization bought 2 duplexes under foreclosure.  The units were also on the city's demolition list.  Now the properties are being renovated. 

An interview process will take place to decide who will get to live in the rehabilitated duplexes.

"We want to make sure that they are ready to live on their own, they're goal oriented and they will not be a nuisance to the neighborhood," Pastor Washington said.

"Whole Man Ministries" hopes to buy 3 more duplexes on the foreclosure list and renovate them in the future.
