TX -- "Basically the program was to give a life back to a post 9-11
warrior," explained Earl Foster, President of the Abilene Association of
The Texas Sentinels have been donating houses to wounded warriors since 2007.
"More than that, however, than just providing a house, but to re-establish them into society, to get them back into life."
They support them with job placement, education and financial assistance.
"We try to get them back into a productive circumstance in society."
Now the Abilene Association of Realtors and the Texas Sentinels are trying to raise money to support a local wounded warrior and provide a home on Velta Lane with no property taxes and no debt.
"There will be toilet paper in the bathroom, groceries in the cupboard, and completely furnished, 100 percent debt free."
Foster says this a community project that is spear-headed by the Abilene realtor community and also by those individuals who want to give back.
"We've got garage doors, plumbers, air conditioner people, roofers, many people, virtually anyone we contact and share the program with has stepped up and said we want to be a part, and it's been a tremendous thing."
The home is expected to be completed by the end of the year and the home recipients will be announced at the end of April.
