Tarrant County Commissioner’s Court approved donating 12 acres for a Texas State Veterans Home in Fort Worth. The 120-bed skilled-nursing facility will be open to Texas veterans age 65 and above, as well as their spouses and Gold Star parents. The project will be built at 1100 Circle Dr., next to the Fort Worth Veterans Administration and Tarrant County Resource Connection.
According to a press release from the Texas General Land Office, locations for Texas State Veterans Home are selected by the greatest veteran need. Almost 84,000 veterans over the age of 65 reside in Dallas and Tarrant Counties. The project will be the 10th such veterans home in the state.
“We are extremely grateful to Tarrant County for their generous donation of 12 acres of property to aid the VLB in expanding services for Texas Veterans,” said Texas General Land Office’s George P. Bush. The design process is underway.
