We are proud to partner with Soldier On, a private, nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness. Their goal is to provide formerly homeless veterans with permanent, supportive, sustainable housing. Read on to learn more about this incredible organization, and what we are doing to partner with them:
About Our Partnership
In support of Soldier On’s mission, Military Direct Mortgage will donate $500 per month toward the nonprofit’s operation costs. Our hope is that a dependable donation source will allow Soldier On to plan for projects that require a set budget to complete.
Furthermore, we plan to work directly with veterans at Soldier On by hosting homeownership webinars and continuing education sessions and by providing credit counseling. Our aim is to assist with the empowerment of veterans, increasing their knowledge and confidence as they journey from homelessness to homeownership.
About Soldier On
Since 1994, the Soldier On has been providing homeless veterans with transitional housing and supportive services. In 2010, the organization opened its first permanent housing cooperative. This housing model is now being replicated nationally as Soldier On continues to help homeless veterans throughout the country. They work in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs and other agencies to provide veterans with shelter and support in an environment that offers dignity, integrity, and, most importantly, hope.
Soldier On’s mission is to offer care to veterans and their families, including immediate and long-term housing with services delivered where they live. They ensure that the veterans they serve are empowered to take the lead role in creating and maintaining all aspects of the Soldier On community.
Soldier On is committed to helping veterans reclaim their place in the community while bringing meaning and dignity back to their lives. We are dedicated to supporting these efforts. For more information or to donate to their efforts, please visit Soldier On online or on Facebook.
