Here is a picture of the first Home for a Veteran. This was Sue Hale's personal give-back project. The project came about from a combination of events. First, she is very thankful for her Freedom and the sacrifice of time and sometimes their life that our veterans paid to preserve her Freedom. She is not rich, but she saves money every month – she calls it her fun saving account. The account earned about $2.50 a month, and she had to pay taxes on that BIG income… Hee Hee. So she decided to put the funds to good use by providing affordable housing to our veterans.
Home for a Veteran creates safe and affordable housing opportunities with a straightforward path to home ownership for servicemen and servicewomen who have helped protect our Freedoms.
Every year, the nation observes Veterans Day in honor of the men and women who have served in the US Armed Forces. As Americans celebrate veterans' service to our country, it is important to recognize their many contributions and sacrifices.
Unfortunately, home ownership remains out of reach for many veterans due to high housing costs. Home for a Veteran serves veterans and their families by providing high quality homes at typically lower-than-market rents (based on HUD’s Section 8 pricing guidelines), with the unique option to purchase them at a very affordable cost.
Home for a Veteran believes that veterans deserve to enjoy the comfort, independence, and peace of mind they fought to protect.
