Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals
Established in 2011, the USA Homeownership Foundation, Inc. DBA Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals (VAREP) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) community service organization dedicated to increasing sustainable homeownership and economic development for the active military and veteran communities.
They were established to advocate on behalf of SDVOB small businesses by business-minded people who had become disabled while serving their Country; they only wanted to be independent, contributing citizens. They currently joyed into a national presence in 42 states. They are serving the veteran-owned businesses in Riverside and San Bernardino counties. The mission is simple "Helping other Vets Help Themselves".
As a housing non-profit for vets, by vets, their success is measured not by a balance sheet for shareholders but by how many lives we can improve through their programs and services. Their proactive stance--providing financial-literacy education and advocating homeownership--may not end the epidemic of homelessness among the veteran community, but can prevent it from happening in the future, one veteran at a time.
VAREP Cares supports active military and veterans as a result of hardship. Every person that has honorably served, deserved a place to go when they need a hand up.
