Several months after some neighbors fought against it, a residential group home for military veterans is now open in Penfield.
Nucor House assists those who served in military service who may be dealing with traumatic brain injury, or post traumatic stress disorder. It's run by the not-for-profit CDS Monarch.
Residents get help with therapy, rehabilitation, job training, and other areas that help them transition from military to civilian life.
"When I read the stories about the explosions and attacks, I can only imagine what they're going through to be on 24-7 alert, that high stress environment, and then they get off the plane and come home and we expect our soldiers to be normal. What we're doing is just unwinding them," said Sankar Sewnauth of CDS Monarch.
CDS Monarch assists people with developmental disabilities, and operates more than two dozen residential homes in the community.
