Dollar General agreed to invest in the roughly 11,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space at Evansville’s newest mixed-use, workforce housing development, The Forge on Main—and add their differentiated DG Market. This store will provide dairy, fresh meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen and canned vegetables, grains and other foods—in addition to the everyday household items customers trust them to provide.

Join the ECHO Housing team in spreading details and awareness about the Annual Veteran Stand Down event hosted by multiple Veteran serving agencies in our community. The event will be at the CK Newsome Center on Wednesday, September 28th, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
In times of war, exhausted combat units requiring time to rest, and recover were removed from the battlefields to a place of relative security and safety. At secure base camp areas, troops were able to take care of personal hygiene, get clean uniforms, enjoy warm meals, receive medical and dental care, mail and receive letters, and enjoy the camaraderie of friends in a safe environment. This was referred to as a Stand Down.
Today, Stand Down refers to a community-based intervention program designed to help the nation’s estimated 107,000 homeless veterans on any given night “combat” life on the streets. Homeless or at-risk veterans are brought together in a single location and are provided access to the community resources needed to focus on improving quality of life.
In the military, Stand Down afforded battle-weary soldiers the opportunity to renew their spirit, health, and overall sense of well-being. Today’s Stand Down affords the same opportunity to homeless or at-risk veterans within our community.
Local homeless or at-risk veterans are provided with a broad range of necessities including food, clothing, medical, legal and mental health assistance, job counseling and referrals, and most importantly, companionship and camaraderie. It is a time for the community to connect with the homeless and at-risk veteran population and address this crisis that affects our community. The event is free to both veterans and service providers ... See MoreSee Less
