On May 10th,2018 the VAREP and Bank of America donated a home to Veteran that could not afford one. The program called House a Vet has been doing this since 2012 and has housed over 2000 military families all over the United States. Al Walch, Dan Heraldo, and Erica Delaney-Lenihan from Bank of America finds the bank owned assets that are donated and gives them to the non- profit (VAREP) who then in turns fixes and refurbish the properties, finds the veteran in need and gets them in mortgage free. This program is a Dream coming true for these deserving people.
Larry DeCoursey Nevada State Director of VAREP along with members Billy Alt, Sky Robinson, and Ernie Gonzalas work hard on these projects and have also partnered with Home Depo to improve these properties.
Cody Katcher, Army Veteran, and his family were the lucky recipients of this property and were totally speechless at the ceremony. He thanked everyone from the bottom of his heart for this great gift.
