Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity (COHFH) and Honoring America’s Warriors have partnered to build up to 25 homes for veterans in the Oklahoma City area. The two non-profits will pool resources to provide opportunities for new home ownership for veterans who qualify based on HUD income requirements. Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity wanted to meet the needs of veterans who deal with the challenges of transitioning from military to civilian life, and who are on a limited income. The program is called “Homes for Warriors”.
“Our organization has always desired to serve our veterans by providing our resources to make the dream of owning a home a reality, but the challenge has been identifying veterans who may qualify. So we reached out to Ret. USAF Major General Rita Aragon with the Oklahoma Department of Veteran Affairs and she connected us with Honoring America’s Warriors”, said COHFH CEO, Ann Felton.
The two organizations have identified veterans who are eligible for the homes, and now they need to raise the funds to get them completed.
