MINNEAPOLIS, — In honor of Military Appreciation Month, the Homes for Heroes Foundation is gifting a total of $50,000 to five non-profit organizations around the country that support homeless veterans by finding them emergency, temporary and permanent affordable housing. Each $10,000 donation will help serve those who have bravely served our country.
“This donation furthers the mission of the Homes for Heroes Foundation: supporting heroes facing a housing crisis or in need of urgent financial assistance,” says Lisa Welsh, Director of the Homes for Heroes Foundation. “We are proud to support these organizations who are helping heroes when they need it most.”
The five organizations are all members of the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans and will use the gift to help heroes directly. The organizations include:
- Veterans Transition Center in Marina, CA
- Changing Homelessness in Jacksonville, FL
- Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans in Minneapolis, MN
- National Veterans Outreach Program in San Antonio, TX
- Compass Housing Alliance in Seattle, WA
“Our goal at Homes for Heroes, Inc. and the Homes for Heroes Foundation is the same — to support our local heroes, from our firefighters and law enforcement to our military members, healthcare and EMS professionals, and teachers,” says Ruth Johnson, CEO and Founder of Homes for Heroes®. “Whether Homes for Heroes helps them save money on their home or the Foundation supports organizations that provide those in need with a helping hand, it’s all part of our Circle of Giving.”
