A home is one of the things that so many of us take for granted each and every day!
We assume that when we finish work, school or some other endeavor, that the place we call home will be there for us to return to.
But not everyone is so lucky!
One of the biggest American tragedies, failures and sources of shame is the fact so many returning veterans, the men and women who risked their lives so that we can live free, are homeless.
But these heroes have hope in the form of Operation Finally Home which, as its main goal, seeks to ‘provide custom-built, mortgage free homes to America’s Heroes and the widows of the fallen who have sacrificed so much to defend our freedoms and our way of life.’
There are many ways for people to help whether through a cash donation, donating time, donating construction material or by providing construction expertise to further this great cause!
While the holiday season makes for a great time to highlight this problem, it is one that needs to be addressed year-round!
About Operation Finally Home
Severely wounded and disabled service members often return home to confront extreme hardships, from physical and emotional disabilities to financial ruin, joblessness and homelessness. Dismayed by their plight, the founders of Operation FINALLY HOME decided to make a difference. Operation FINALLY HOME was created in 2005 as a nonpartisan/nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with the mission to provide Americans the ability to honor and thank America’s wounded and disabled veterans and the widows of the fallen who have sacrificed to defend our freedom and values.
Operation Finally Home Mission
At Operation FINALLY HOME, we provide custom-built, mortgage free homes to America’s Heroes and the widows of the fallen who have sacrificed so much to defend our freedoms and our way of life. We bring together corporate sponsors, builder associations, builders, developers, individual contributors, and volunteers to help these Heroes and their families transition to the home front by addressing one of their most pressing needs – a home to call their own.
With faith in God and determined action, we will have hundreds of homes built annually across the nation for our Heroes, those who have sacrificed while wearing America’s uniform in defense of our freedoms and our way of life. It’s our way of helping them get their lives back on track after the hardships they have faced. We want Operation FINALLY HOME to be a nationally recognized charity and a household name that inspires others to help in our cause.
