My Housing Resource Specialist helped me move in the right direction. I was even set up with a job interview! We didn’t think anyone would take us, we had no income, no credit and no rental history. Now we don’t have to worry about anything but our bills. Life is much better.
Thanks so much everyone for coming out yesterday for the Homes for Heroes fundraiser! Thank you to the American Legion Post 305, the West Michigan Veterans and Modern Woodmen Insurance for all of your support! ... See MoreSee Less
Army veteran Tobie and his wife, Sheryl, found themselves in an undesirable housing and financial situation approximately three months ago. On the brink of homelessness and no one to turn to, Tobie was connected to the Community Rebuilders Veteran Residential Service program through Health Care for Homeless Veterans and was promptly placed into a scattered site apartment where he and his wife could begin to rebuild. “We were three days away from not having a home.

Having the time and support from Community Rebuilders, Tobie and his wife were able to pay off debts, increase their credit score, and with the assistance of the Veterans United Home Loan program, pursue homeownership.
“Having a place of our own gave us such piece of mind. It enabled us to focus on the things necessary to purchase our home. The program relieved so much stress and allowed us to get down to business and get back on track. What helped the most was having the ability to pay off debts so that we can have a fresh start, a clean slate!”
“Our church was a huge support for us, and this would not have been possible without VA support. People need to know they are cared for and I feel cared for. I am thankful and proud. Now, as of October 1st, we will be moving into our new home! In the next three months I also plan on publishing a new book.” ... See MoreSee Less
