HUNTSVILLE, Ala., 3 May 2018 -- A Veteran spouse had been living with a hole in her roof since August 2017, enduring storms and an unseasonably frigid North Alabama winter. Mercies Ministries, a local charitable organization, volunteered their time and resources to repair the roof's exterior. SSV Veteran Resource Connector Patience Steward served as an advocate to the military spouse, seeking additional support from The Home Depot Foundation's (THDF) Veteran Housing Program. The request was granted, the roof's exterior repaired and THDF will now intervene to complete the roof's interior. SSV is honored to serve Veterans and their families by connecting them with life-saving resources.
