Veteran Resources

“First and foremost, all of us at Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity would like to thank you for your service to our country. While the scope of our services is limited to those who meet specific requirements for homeownership (insert link), we are still committed to assisting the veteran community as a whole. It is in that spirit that we extend to you a resource page that includes local and national entities to aid you in your journey through civilian life. We cannot thank you enough, but we will continue to try through our continued dedication to you – the American Veteran.”
