Habitat for Humanity has been on a mission to end veteran homelessness in River City.
The organization got one step closer to fulfilling their mission when they dedicated a home to veteran family, Gail and Rex Perry.
Rex is a Marine veteran of the Vietnam War. He and his wife have battled poverty, sickness, and homelessness for years.
A year ago, Rex got incredibly sick and lost his job.
A few months late Gail was diagnosed with breast cancer.
At this point the couple was on and off the streets and living out of a car.
But with help from Habitat for Humanity the couple was able to fight their way back to a safe and stable life.
Healing Heroes Network (HHN) has been providing financial assistance to our veterans since 2008. As a non-profit organization, HHN's primary focus is to provide the means for wounded warriors to get the treatment and therapies they deserve and need.
Along with sweepstakes advertised at Hero Giveaway, HHN solely relies on the graciousness of their followers on Facebook through donations, merchandise, and entries to HG's giveaways.
Thanks for your continued support for our troops. For more information, and to donate to the cause, click the link below!
