We’re Committed to Helping Veterans

Without our veterans, we wouldn’t have the freedom to build. It’s why we remain so committed to giving back.

Giving back to those who give so much.

Since 2013, we’ve partnered with Operation Homefront to donate 12 brand new, mortgage-free, energy-efficient homes to deserving veterans across the country. On November 7, 2019, in Atlanta, we donated our 13th home to the Shreves family.
 Operation Homefront selects the recipient for the new home to be donated 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.

Congratulations to the Shreves Family!

We’re thrilled to announce the recipient of this year’s mortgage-free home. Marine Cpl. Shandrika Shreves, Sgt. Juval Shreves, and their two children, were handed the keys to their new home on November 7, 2019. 

“Home ownership is something me and my husband always dreamed of having and it’s so amazing to not only have a house but to have a brand-new home given to you,” she said. “…We get to go to sleep without suffering, and struggling, and contemplating. It’s such a big deal. We really appreciate that gift. It just doesn’t feel real to me. I tell my husband ‘pinch me.’ This is really happening.”
