VRM Awards $10,000 Grant To U.S. Air Force Veteran Through AREAA Education Foundation Program
The Welcome Home for Heroes Housing Assistance Grant Program is designed to provide housing support to minority Veterans of the United States Armed Forces. The funds can be used to modify an existing home to accommodate service-connected injuries or as downpayment and closing cost assistance.
Lal, a decorated Fijian-American Veteran, served for six years in the U.S. Air Force earning multiple medals in honor of his service. “I want to thank everyone, from my heart, for making the American Dream come true for me and my family,” said Lal at the event.
“It’s really an honor to be able to provide this grant and help our nation’s veterans, like Darryl Lal, earn the home they deserve,” said Cheryl Travis-Johnson, chief operating officer for VRM Mortgage Services. “Further, as the daughter of a disabled Veteran, I couldn’t be more proud to help play a role in such an important program.”
“We are proud of our partnership with VRM Mortgage Services in being able to provide this grant to Mr. Lal. He served his country with honor, and has earned a chance at the American Dream,” said AREAA Education Foundation Co-Founder Allen Okamoto. “We are truly humbled to help him move toward that goal, and wish him the very best. We look forward to being able to help many more Veterans in need of housing assistance as we continue to move forward with this program.”
This year, the Welcome Home for Heroes Housing Assistance Grant Program aims to raise $385,000.00 to support 170 veterans and their families. To make a contribution, please visit www.areaafoundation.org.
