Where we love is home - home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts. -Oliver Wendell Holmes, excerpt from poem Homesick in Heaven
We strive to provide homes for our patriots. This might seem pretty straightforward, but there’s a deeper meaning to it. We’re not just in the business of giving housing to active military officers, military veterans and their families. A house is not a home; it’s merely a start. When you think of home, you don’t just think of the physical house, you think of the people that live there, the sights, the smells, the surrounding areas. Our soldiers know this more than many of us; they think of home when they close their eyes, when they march, when they breathe. There are places all over the world: cities and remote areas and barracks filled with thoughts of us and our towns. We want to bring these homes back for them.
We are Residence for Patriots Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization based in Las Vegas, NV. We started with a simple idea, to provide easily accessible housing for military veterans. We have since expanded that idea to encompass the ideas above. There are a lot of things that veterans and active servicemen need, ranging from housing, job placement, counseling services, camaraderie in civil society, the list goes on and on.
There are so many needs, but we are only one organization. We rely on you, our civil patriots, to aid us on this mission. We implore you for your assistance and alliance. Help us help our patriots.
