Volunteers of America Colorado will use most of a new $150,000 Wells Fargo grant to help military veterans with housing, health and other needs.

In a news release Monday, the faith-based nonprofit said $100,000 of the grant will help 100 veterans in the Denver metro area, Pueblo and northern Colorado who are not eligible for Veterans Administration benefits get quick access to behavioral health services and financial assistance for housing, transportation, child care and other needs.

The remaining $50,000 will go to a Volunteers of America shelter in Durango that serves more than 400 homeless children and adults every year.
