The Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes (Coalition), a leading not-for-profit organization dedicated to rebuilding the lives of severely wounded veterans of the War on Terror, today awarded a $5,000 grant to Final Salute, Inc., to provide transitional housing for homeless female veterans and their children.
Founded in 2010 by Jaspen “Jas” Boothe, who served in the U.S. Army for 13 years, Final Salute’s mission is to provide homeless female veterans with safe and suitable housing. The organization has assisted more than 100 veterans and their children and
now operates three transitional homes in Fairfax, VA, Alexandria, VA, and Columbus, OH.
“It’s a national disgrace that any person who has bravely fought to defend our freedoms should return from overseas and be homeless,” said David Walker, President & CEO of the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes. “Final Salute is doing the Lord’s work specifically in support of female veterans and their kids, and we are pleased to support their noble efforts. It’s a shame it’s even necessary, but we’re glad to know that Jas and her team are there to help.” Read More
