Nearly three dozen veterans were homeless last year on Cape Cod according to the Cape and Islands Regional Network on Homelessness.

Two Dennis officials want to decrease that number by building a home for six of those veterans. Town Planner Daniel Fortier and Selectman Wayne Bergeron hope to use a piece of town land off Route 134 and build a home using volunteers and donated materials.

But they have a tight deadline—they want to do it by Christmas.

Kathryn Eident talked Town Planner Daniel Fortier to learn more.
