No. Recipients of mortgage free homes, are required to participate in a holistic one to three-year transition program designed to prepare honorably discharged veterans and their families for the responsibilities of home ownership. Veterans are required to demonstrate an ability to care for the home while in the program, to ensure they don’t lose the home once deeded. Veterans must complete regular and continuing financial counseling, work to achieve mutually agreed upon goals to increase savings and reduce debt, attend required medical appointments, stay out of legal trouble and become involved in the community (volunteering, youth coaching, religious activity, etc.). Veteran families are required to pay all escrow, comply with applicable HOA requirements, and demonstrate progress to program caseworkers during regularly scheduled virtual and in-person home visits. Only upon successful completion of the transition program, are the homes deeded to the veteran.
Membership requires an invitation from, or application to, the executive council During the review process, candidates are carefully screened and interviewed to determine eligibility and level of commitment to the mission of the organization.
