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’re partnered with Operation Homefront to donate 13 brand new, mortgage-free homes to deserving veterans across the country. This year, we donated our 14th in the Tampa, Florida area.

Operation Homefront selects the recipient for the new home to be donated through its Permanent Homes for Veterans (PHV) program. Families in the PHV program work directly with Operation Homefront caseworkers and financial counselors for 1-3 years to learn how to be successful homeowners.

Congratulations, Johnson Family, on your new home!

This fall, Navy Petty Officer First Class Garfield Johnson, his wife, Tia, and their two young children received the keys to their brand-new Meritage home in the Tampa, Florida area.

“This is more than a house; this represents a stronger, more stable future for my family. We are so grateful to all the people who have helped to make this possible and the thoughtfulness that they put into all the detailsStepping foot inside this home, I can envision family dinners, holiday gatherings and life milestones. Thank you for making this possible for us.”

– Navy Petty Officer First Class Garfield Johnson
