Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity Seeking Veteran for New Program

Posted:
Gloucester County's Habitat for Humanity is seeking a veteran in need, specifically, a local post-9/11 veteran who wants to partner with the affiliate's new Veterans Build program.
Danny Sulpizio, president of the Habitat affiliate's board of directors, said that they have reached out to local veterans organizations but they haven't been able to find a veteran who has recently served who could benefit from the program.
The Veterans Build program aims to build a network of Habitat affiliates, military, veteran service organizations, non-profits, and sponsors that will increase the capacity to serve the housing needs of veterans through homeowners.
"We are happy to have the opportunity to extend this mission to include our military veterans," said Sulpizio.
While Habitat partner families are always required to contribute hours of "sweat equity" in order to buy a home through the affiliate, they usually don't work on their own homes. Sulpizio is hoping the partner veteran will be able to work on the home that they'll eventually live in.
