Fairway Employees honoring Project Veterans PrideA Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation branch in the Scottsdale, Arizona area partnered with the American Warrior Initiative (AWI) to honor a local U.S. veterans organization. Along with a donation, the Scottsdale branch held a residential housing “boot camp” to train real estate professionals and mortgage planners on how to best handle the home-purchase needs of active duty military members and veterans.

At the Scottsdale event, Fairway and AWI honored Project Veterans Pride — a local veterans organization — and the James Walton Home with a grant for $10,000. Project Veterans Pride operates on the mission statement, “to have every homeless veteran gain back their pride and dignity so that they can return to society as a self-sufficient and productive member once again.”

In the spirit of this mission, Project Veterans Pride finds verified veterans and provides them with transitional housing to help rebuild their lives. The James Walton Home, part of Project Veterans Pride, provides homeless male veterans with 90 days of transitional housing during which time they have access to all the resources they need to become stabilized. These resources include a housing specialist, job specialists and unobtained benefits.

Co-founded by Louise Thaxton and Sean Parnell, the American Warrior Initiative is a non-profit organization sponsored by Fairway Independent Mortgage. AWI seeks to ease U.S. veterans’ transition from military to civilian life.

I am proud to work for a company that does so much to honor those who sacrifice for our country. If I can help answer any questions about VA loans or any other home loan options, please give me a call.
