Jacksonville, Illinois (PRWEB) August 08, 2016
A Patriot’s Home (APH) announces a bold initiative today to support veteran military families by providing them with mortgage free housing in the Jacksonville, IL community. The organization’s mission will focus on cultivating vibrant communities and rebuilding lives by providing Veterans and their families with refurbished mortgage free homes
Starting today, APH will be launching its first “State Hub” in Jacksonville, Illinois. A state hub is a key location where APH will focus on refurbishing homes, supporting community service projects and developing job growth within a 30 mile radius of the hub location. By working within a 30 mile radius APH can provide resources, and help the rebuilding of smaller communities in America. APH estimates that they will be budgeting approximately $10 million dollars into the area for this program.
Research shows that the course of this year over 140,000 veterans are in need of housing each year. Plus, one out of nine veterans is a women.
“I am very excited to bring this first state hub to Jacksonville, Illinois and welcoming 50 new veteran military families to this area. Over the next year, our focus will be on launching this State Hub and supporting a goal of purchasing and refurbishing 50 homes” said Everett Grady, chairperson and executive director of APH. “We’ll be using local Jacksonville contractors and suppliers with this effort. They just need to go to our website and register for more information.”
Additionally, Veteran families who currently reside within the 30-mile radius of Jacksonville, Illinois can request needed support on specific home repair needs as well. They can go to http://www.apatriotshome.com
A Patriot’s Home will award the homes to veteran military families through national nonprofit Operation Homefront. Since 2012, Operation Homefront has awarded over 550 homes nationally through their Homes on the Homefront program. http://www.operationhomefront.net
APH also maintains and operates The Ultimate American Raffle that is one of the main funding sources for APH programs.
