Officials are looking for a returning veteran with a family to rent a recently completed four-bedroom, handicapped-accessible apartment in East Weymouth. Neighborhood Housing Services of the South Shore bought the foreclosed home and Weymouth chipped in its share of HOME federal funds to renovate the vacant home and an apartment in the backyard, according to Robert Corley, executive director of the housing agency, which has offices in Quincy, Brockton, and New Bedford. “What better way to honor the service and sacrifices of our veterans than to dedicate this beautiful new home?” Corley said. “If every community in the state did it — even just one [project] — it would have a huge impact.”
