Rolling out the welcome mat for those who serve
79% of military families say homeownership is a priority, compared to 68 percent of families overall.

Nov. 11 is the day we celebrate the more than 18 million veterans in this country. While some veterans still face housing challenges, others are making great strides in achieving and sustaining homeownership. This issue highlights how our network members are helping veterans of all ages achieve the dream of homeownership.

A partnership between a junk removal and hauling business and network member HDC MidAtlantic is easing the transition from homelessness to home. Junk-removal company JDog is owned and operated by veterans. JDog works with HDC MidAtlantic to identify unwanted furniture, which then is donated to a homeless veterans’ shelter to furnish apartments and living areas when residents transition to new homes.
