In Manvel, TX there is a home so large the owners have been struggling to sell it for years.

This enormous home that seems unaffordable for most, could now serve as a respite for veterans. A group of people have come together to create the Bailey House Veteran Facility, named for the character George Bailey from the film "It's a Wonderful Life."

According to their Facebook page, a Meet and Greet event has been organized for this weekend. Visitors can stop by between 10 am till 12 pm to see what they intend to do with the property.

Scrolling through the comments on their wall, it was a blessing to see so many people want to come together to turn this abandoned spot into a place of positivity.

Not permanent housing, but rotating counseling programs, 8-10 weeks. Once we get the right permits, zoning and licenses​, but it's going to take some time. With the construction phase projected at about a year. And working with the City, Fire Marshall, and local Police department, and building trust with the local community and churches, I really think and see this coming to fruitation. - Christa
