I've had great experiences working with Saving Veterans Homes. John has been very responsive and communicates quickly to help me assist veterans in crisis. He also doesn't judge and is good at taking a veteran's full situation into consideration. I take comfort in knowing that Saving Veterans Homes is a reliable resource and if they have the money they will do what they can to help.

This is the best non-profit out there. It takes care of those who first took care of us. The overhead is very low so we know that vast majority of our our donation dollars are going to the Veterans. This speaks volumes about the integrity of this charity.

I wish all charities were run as well as this one. We have the gold standard here, the true role model operation.

There are lots of charities that help someone when they are homeless; shelters, soup kitchens etc. But almost none are focused on helping veterans avoid becoming homeless in the first place. That is what Saving Veterans Homes is all about. It is much more costly to take care of someone when they are homeless than it takes to keep them from becoming homeless. And when someone is homeless they are subject to more danger by being on the streets and subjected to more physical and mental health issues. A veteran should never be homeless in America. Help Saving Veterans Homes to help our veterans.

This organization has a true heart for Veterans. It's unthinkable that a veteran who has served our country could then lose their home when returning from service. John and his organization are working hard to make sure this doesn't happen, one veteran at a time.

Mr. Woodhouse from Saving our Veterans Homes was a tremendous blessing to me and my husband in 2016. The organization helped us with our rent during some very trying times. Even when we didn't ask for it, they made up the difference for what they could not help us with a few months later during the holiday season, which was much needed. Me and my family are very grateful for them being there when we needed it the most. - CH

I am a veteran and suffer from PTSD and Bipolar brought on by PTSD. Almost 2 yr. ago the illness began to take a heavy toll on me. Due to the conditions of the illnesses I became unemployed. That sent me into a downward spiral that left me out of all available funds. I reached out to Circle of Veterans who put me in touch with John. John's compassion was a God send. Saving Veterans Homes, Inc. has given me a life line so that I can maintain a sense of stability and helped keep my ability to have my daughter for visitation. They have truely saved me from certain dispair by providing me hope. Thank you SVH Inc, and thank you John Woodhouse.

I am the owner and leasor of a house that is rented to Raymond Hormuth, whom I have know for over 15 years. He is a honest and reliable tenant. About 2 years ago he began having issues related to PTSD and Bipolar. He started to fall behind on his rent but I was willing to work with as much as I could. However, it got to a point that I could no longer carry the past due amount. Raymond reached out to Circle of Veterans who put him in touch with John Woodhouse. John the reached out to me and assured me that the rent would be covered until Raymond could get back on his feet. The kindness and generosity of your organization has been very helpful, and John approachability and willingness to help a tenant and friend shows the compassion in the hearts of the people who volunteer with you.

Helping our service men and women out in there time of need is what we all need to do! They sacrifice their lives for our country and deserve a little assistance when they need it! Having a home to come back too is something all of our service men and women should not have to worry about!

This is one of the few charities that I know of where nearly every penny raised goes to the great cause of saving veterans homes who are in danger of losing their homes, often due to their untimely deployments. The founder (also a vet) stands in front of Publix and SAMs Club in Tampa anytime they'll let him, and raises as much money as he can, in hopes of making an extra mortgage payment or two for deserving veterans. Instead of relaxing in his retirement, he feels that this is the least he can do for these vets.

Saving Veterans Homes strives to have more than 90% of donations to actually go to veterans and military families. Currently that ratio is 98%. It has recently helped several veterans avoid becoming homeless. It may be the only organization that helps veterans BEFORE they become homeless.
