A Rhode Island nonprofit group is set to open its newest homes for homeless veterans in Johnson. Senior state officials are expected to join Operation Stand Down Rhode Island executives Monday to unveil its $1.3 million project that converted two distressed properties into six new homes. The units on Hartford Avenue will provide homeless veterans access to support services run by the Providence Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The homes will be named to honor the memories of Joan Louise Mayo of the US Air Force; John Arthur Johnson of the Navy; and the Army’s Ronald Blake, who was killed in action in Vietnam in 1965.
