Operation Homefront, the national nonprofit whose mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families, presented U.S. Army Specialist Rhynishka Whyte and her family with the keys to a newly renovated mortgage-free home, donated by JPMorgan Chase & Co., at the 72nd National Association of Real Estate Brokers Convention. Rhynishka and her family were accepted into Operation Homefront’s Homes on the Homefront (HOTH) program where they will move into the home, work with financial counselors and caseworkers to build their savings, reduce debt, learn home ownership skills and develop a customized community reintegration plan, that will help provide them with long-term stability. “I’m just so grateful to JPMorgan Chase,” said Rhynishka Whyte. “It makes me feel humble and so happy that they selected me for something like this. Never in my wildest dreams had I believed I would receive a home.” Thanks to JPMorgan Chase and Operation Homefront, Rhynishka will enter the Homes on the Homefront program in Danbury, Connecticut, near family and a great support system. This home will allow Rhynishka to go back to school and attend college to pursue her bachelor’s in sociology. Her goal is to get a master’s in social work so she can work with other veterans.
