Success Stories

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.

VAREP was established to advocate on behalf of SDVOSB small businesses by business-minded people who had become disabled while serving their country. As independent, contributing citizens, they expanded into a national presence in 42 states. VAREP is currently serving veteran-owned businesses in Riverside and San Bernardino counties. The mission is simple: "Helping other vets help themselves."

As a housing nonprofit for vets, by vets, their success is measured not by a balance sheet for shareholders but by how many lives are improved through programs and services. Their proactive stance—providing financial-literacy education and advocating homeownership—prevents the epidemic of homelessness among the veteran community from happening in the future, one veteran at a time.

VAREP Cares Program

VAREP Cares supports active military and veterans as a result of hardship. Every person that has honorably served deserves a place to go when they need a hand up.

MEGA LED Technology, Inc.

MEGA LED is a small technology manufacturing company located in Los Angeles with less than 20 employees.

Founded in 2006, the company has had steady growth while proudly manufacturing in the United States.

As a contributor to America’s space program, MEGA LED has successfully contributed to the launch of the next generation Orion spacecraft last month at the Kennedy Space Center. This spacecraft is designed to take us deeper into outer space than we've ever gone before. NASA contracted MEGA LED to build a top-of-line LED display that is used to replace the old countdown clock which has been viewed by millions of people around the world. MEGA LED built a product 7 feet high and 26 feet wide with 460,000 LED lights tightly packed to provide the best resolution and the best outdoor LED display performance to date which will display America’s spacecraft launch countdown from now on.
