Cueto Boarding House: Future Home of Vets

It looks like the Historic Cueto Boarding House located at 1301 Columbus Drive will be the future home of homeless female vets - at least according to an article in the June 29th edition of the Tampa Tribune.

The building will be home to a Tampa Crossroads Program named the Athena Project, according to Sara Romeo - Executive Director. Link to tribune article.

Has anyone heard from the City or from Tampa Crossroads??
