Liberty Manor accepted me with open arms and I am glad they did. I am a veteran Marine Corp and was confused about where to go. The services extended far beyond housing. I received a scooter, clothing, food and much more. Thank all of you who made this program available.

I cannot say enough good things about this organization. They have done so much to decrease the homeless veteran population. Connie says, homeless and veteran should never be in the same sentence and I agree! Continue your good work!

I find it very rewarding to work with this organization as a volunteer. My father was an Air Force veteran therefore...I try to make a contribution by giving my talent back to veterans who have already provided me with a service.

I have been a resident of Liberty Manor for 10 months and found refuge here since being in a homeless situation in 2017. The landlords Connie Lindsay and David Lindsay have been very supportive and make me feel like part of their extended family. Their hard work and dedication is much appreciated around the house. Liberty Manor is set up for homeless veterans. I feel fortunate to be accepted at Liberty Manor as a civilian. Thank you Connie and David. You are both awesome.

I am a retired Veteran of 25 years in the U.S. Army. I recently became involved in a financial hardship with no where or no one to turn to for support. I read about Liberty Manor in the paper and called Mrs. Connie, she has been Awesome in providing me with support and assisting me in getting back on my feet. Mrs Connie provided me emergency housing at Liberty Manor the same day I informed her of my situation, at Liberty Manor Veterans are appreciated and treated with dignity. Mrs, Connie is at the location everyday talking to everyone, making improvements to the facility, taking Veterans to eat and social events with her personal finance. I moved out after 4 months and she assisted me in getting furniture and mattress from other veteran charities. Mrs. Connie has provided me exceptional support and was vital in assisting me getting back on my feet.

Have been volunteering at Liberty Manor for 6 years. A great non profit that addresses a hole in services for Veterans. Provides a home, meals and
support for previously homeless honorably discharged Veterans to get back in the main stream of life. I am passionate about the service this home provides

I am convinced this is one of the best 501c3 non-profit organizations in America! They do so much for veterans, they exceed expectations by planning Christmas In July events, taking them on fishing trips, over night beach trips, etc.

My name is Clint Eagen and I lived at Liberty Manor for a short time. I have been clean for 3 years now and have two of my children living with me in have a stable and happy life. When I had nowhere to go Connie and Liberty Manor for Veterans took me in and gave me a chance, and although my journey was not a smooth one, without their help, I'm not sure it would have been a successful one. Thank You, I'll never forget the help I was given.

This organization does "fantastical" things that are nothing but positive. If something positive happens to me...something positive will probably happen to someone else. Positive breeds in the positive. It's a good start to a positive future.

I am proud to have honorably served our Country for 11 years. I have accomplished a few things in my life, but I believe I am nowhere near finished yet. I had no idea that my body would feel they way it started to feel about five years ago from all the abuse I put it through as a younger man. I was young and aggressive…I loved the physical challenges of being an ARMY RANGER. I never thought I would also own a business for over a decade either. But most of ALL, I never thought I would find myself homeless. I’m a not going to tell you a sob story! I want to convey to anyone who reads this that this is about hope!

I learned of Liberty Manor for Veterans from my church years before I came to them for help. Members from my church have held cookouts for the Veterans at Liberty Manor and found it fulfilling to do so…the church members were actually bragging about it. When I found myself in a homeless state, I did my best to keep my wits about me and find a solution. I was able to recall my friend’s pleasant experience at Liberty Manor. Quite frankly all it took was for me to make one simple phone call!

After speaking to Connie Blaney and Jeff Luddeke, the wheels of hope went into full gear. As fast as I was homeless, ever faster I had a new home where I could think about what got me into this position in the first place. I was provided everything I needed. I found myself in a safe home with a warm bed, all the food I could cook and eat, cable TV, washer and dryer and most of all, fellow Veterans Brothers that Ms. Blaney had rescued as well.

I was living at the womens program, Afena House and moved here due to a recommended by a fellow veteran named Tony who was a former resident. I was introduced to Jeff and Connie while a BBQ was going on at Liberty Manor. They took me in and made me feel at home.

I was a homeless veteran and asked a church for help, they called Liberty Manor, and they picked me up within half an hour. They were nso kind and welcoming. I now have a chance to get my life back. I can now receive rent assistance as well. Today, a veterans group brought loads of food and other things for us.

I was a former resident of Liberty Manor for Veterans, Inc.

I was standing in line at the Salvation Army shelter when Connie Blaney learned that I was an honorably discharged veteran and walked up to me, told me about Liberty Manor. I left with her that day and moved into Liberty Manor for Veterans - thank God!

I arrived at Liberty Manor from a program called New Beginnings. I was referred to Liberty Manor by Leroy Milliage with Hillsborough County Health and Social Services. When I first saw Liberty Manor, I was hooked! We are well fed and the holidasys seem much more like Christmas! I'm well pleased - thanks.

As a result of the staff and other residents, I feel better aboiut myself.
