Because of you, Iraq War Veteran Jonathan and his wife Lindsay now own a safe, stable, and affordable home.

This fall, Jonathan, Lindsay and their children Josh (7) and Karolyne (2) celebrated the completion of their new home amongst donors, volunteers, friends, and family.

“It’s ours and that’s the best thing about it,” Jonathan said.

“It’s beyond words of our appreciation,” Jonathan said.
