Operation Homefront announced recently that Wade Jurney Homes, a home builder building affordable, quality homes throughout the Carolinas area and built upon a foundation of unmatched customer service, reliability, and trust, will donate six to eight homes to military families.
Wade Jurney Homes is providing the homes and other support as part of Operation Homefront’s Homes on the Homefront program. The first home, located in Salisbury, North Carolina, north of Charlotte, is already under construction.
"Operation Homefront is absolutely thrilled to be working with Wade Jurney Homes as they clearly share our unwavering commitment to building strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive in the communities they have worked so hard to protect,” said Brig. Gen. (ret.) John I. Pray Jr., president and CEO of Operation Homefront."
The deadline for applications for the new home has passed. Operation Homefront will select the recipient for the new home and announce their name on November 1, with keys to be awarded to the veteran home recipient before the Christmas season.
"Wade Jurney Homes wanted the opportunity to give back to the community and the men and women who serve our country,” said Wade G. Jurney Jr., president of Wade Jurney Homes. “Partnering with Operation Homefront gives us the ability to build a home for those who have given so much for us. We are looking forward to a partnership now and for years to come.”
“Wade Jurney Homes strives every day to make the dream of homeownership come true,” added Jurney. “We are especially honored to be able to make this dream a reality for a veteran."
The Homes on the Homefront program began in 2012. Since inception, Operation Homefront has placed more than 550 veterans and their families in mortgage-free homes. Wade Jurney is the second home builder to join the program. To find out more about the program and view homes currently open for application, please visit www.homesonthehomefront.org.
