A couple of years ago, Mr. Lloyd Ashley came to our office for assistance through our Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF), which we are operating with our partners Soldier On out of Pittsfield, MA. Mr. Ashley is a retired veteran, having served our country for twenty-one years. We were able to get him into a quality and stable housing situation.
In March of 2015, Mr. Ashley took the bold step of applying to purchase one of our newly rehabbed houses. Over the next 17 months, Mr. Ashley and his mother, Constance Ashley, worked hard with our realtor, Sandra Todd-Thompson, to qualify for a loan.
Today, we were able to attend the house closing of the Ashley’s as they purchased their new home. We are so honored to be able to bless this mother and son who have given so much to our nation and never gave up in their dream to own their home. Rebuilding Lives and Communities through the Gospel – it is what God has blessed us to be able to do!
