“Mission to Recovery”: a touching book about a retired man’s dream to use his land in order to help the homeless that has been threatened by a neighbor who claims this land is rightfully his. “Mission to Recovery” is the creation of published author, Diane Winters, a nurse and an avid reader of all genres who came from a large family and grew up in a farming community.

Winter shares, “He had to have a surveyor come in to set up stakes for the housing, and the county had already approved his project at a meeting before he came home. Jose had helped get that pushed through for him so he could begin work as soon as he could once he had moved home. ‘I have enough saved up to get the first couple of houses completed, and I used my mom’s life insurance policy money to buy the manufactured home for myself and pay for the work on the new water and sewer lines. Once we get established and show positive results, I hope to raise money to help support further housing and living expenses. Success will be based on the ability to get the homeless off of the streets and back into society as working and contributing members of the community. I’d like to see Sidwell become a hub of veteran business entrepreneurs. One of the commitments the veterans must make is to give back to fellow veterans, so I hope to have a whole network of volunteers in the future so we can expand our services to the surrounding counties.’”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Diane Winters’s new book is a fascinating work of veterans Jon Forrest and Lily Canon and their journey in making the dream of building Veterans Helping Veterans a reality despite the threat given by Craig McKinney, Jon’s neighbor who claims that he owns the land where the place for the homeless veterans will be founded.
