Raising the Roof of Hope on Veteran Housing in Statesville

Last Updated 2/7/2024In Discover Statesville - The Show

Imagine the warmth of a community embracing its heroes, where the sacrifice of service is met with more than just words, but with roofs, walls, and the comfort of home. That's the story we uncover as John Gallina, co-founder of Purple Heart Homes, and our neighbor here in Statesville, Jared Bowman join us to share powerful tales of transformation through partnership.  

From modest beginnings in Statesville, Purple Heart Homes has blossomed into a national beacon of hope, pouring over $43 million into veteran housing through an impressive array of over 1,500 projects. As we celebrate the local support that's at the heart of this mission, the spirit of our city reaches out, touching veteran lives from coast to coast.

Our journey takes us through a collaboration with Military Makeover that is not only changing the lives of a local military family, but also underscoring the critical housing needs of our veterans. This episode brings forth the joy, the struggle, and the triumphant community spirit woven into this organization's fabric. We also look ahead to Purple Heart Home's events like the "Take That Hill" cycling challenge and their golf tournament, inviting you to be a part of this ever-expanding circle of support. 

We're moved by Jared's personal account, a testament to the financial and emotional sanctuary the Military Makeover project provides, and we invite you to experience the profound impact of Purple Heart Homes work, right here on Discover Statesville.
