Wade Jurney Homes and Operation Homefront are pleased to announce that they will award a home to a military family in Wilson, North Carolina, in mid-September 2018.

Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit that builds strong, stable, and secure military families so that they can thrive in the communities they have worked so hard to protect, has awarded over 600 homes in the last five years and delivered impact homeownership training to nearly 500 families who now are able to live successfully in mortgage-free homes, thanks to partners like Wade Jurney Homes.

“Having a safe and secure place to call home is a critical factor in helping our military families have the opportunity to thrive, not simply struggle to get by, in the communities they have worked so hard to protect,” said Brig. Gen. (ret.) John I. Pray, Jr., President and CEO for Operation Homefront. “Which is why we are deeply grateful for Wade Jurney’s continued support and thrilled to team with this amazing corporate sponsor to provide another mortgage-free home to another deserving military family. Simply put, it will be life-changing.”

This is the third home donation in two years for Wade Jurney Homes, a home builder building affordable, quality homes throughout the Carolinas area and built upon a foundation of unmatched customer service, reliability, and trust. The two other homes, currently occupied by two deserving veteran families, are in Salisbury and Holly Ridge, North Carolina.

"Wade Jurney Homes is honored to once again have the opportunity to give back to our community and the men and women who serve our country,” said Wade G. Jurney Jr., president of Wade Jurney Homes. “Partnering with Operation Homefront gives us the ability to build a new home for those who have given so much for us. We are excited to donate our third home in two years to a military family and look forward to welcoming them into their new home soon.”

Operation Homefront will select the recipient for the Wilson, North Carolina, home through its Homes on the Homefront (HOTH) program. Families in the HOTH program work directly with Operation Homefront caseworkers and financial counselors for 1-3 years to learn how to be successful home owners.

The 1,001 square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bathroom, one-car garage will be built in a charming community that is convenient to many coastal amenities. Applications for the new home are being accepted as of today. To apply for the home, please visit http://www.homesonthehomefront.org. This life-changing opportunity will be announced mid-September with keys awarded to the family by the end of October.
