Wounded Warrior Project Answers VA Home Loan Benefit Questions

SAN ANTONIO, March 14, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For most people, purchasing a house can be an intimidating process, especially for those unsure about using home loan benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) and Veterans United Home Loans of San Antonio attempt to bridge that information gap with monthly VA home loan seminars. Recently, WWP veterans networked with fellow service members while learning about getting the most from their benefits, saving money, building equity, and shopping around for the best deal.

"We're looking for a new home," said Winetta Wilson, wife of Army veteran Jerome, "and we didn't know much about VA loans when we purchased our current home. We felt like we needed to be more educated going into our next home purchase, and this gathering certainly helped us understand the VA loan process better."

"At Wounded Warrior Project, your service doesn't end once you hang up your uniform, and neither does ours," said Angela Staab, who works with Veterans United. "Many military service members are unaware of the homeownership benefits they have earned from serving their country." 

Participants learned about VA loan eligibility requirements and the VA home loan process. In addition, warriors received credit-guidance information, basic VA benefit facts, and specific regional Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) rate figures.

"Wounded Warrior Project has helped us in some of our most difficult times," Winetta said. "They've given my husband and I opportunities to reconnect and reminded him there are others out there like him."  

WWP serves warriors by connecting them with one another and their communities. Programs also focus on mental and physical health and wellness, financial wellness, independence, government relations, and community relations and partnerships. Generous donors make it possible for wounded warriors to take part in connection activities and benefit from program resources at no cost to them.
