Review for Liberty Manor for Veterans Inc, Tampa, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Liberty Manor’s love for Veterans in no way stopped there. I was given personal attention and direction on negotiating all the obstacles that Veterans encounter on a daily basis with the Veterans Administration. The abundance of experience and knowledge provided by Ms. Blaney and her staff as well as their eagerness to aid me just because of the mere fact I served our country is what kept me from literally finding myself in a cardboard box somewhere!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

When I really thought hard about things, I had to ask myself the question…”how does Connie Blaney and her staff at Liberty Manor, perform these benevolent acts of random kindness on a daily basis for such an extended period of time”? THANK YOU CONNIE AND LIBERTY MANOR!!!!

Role:  Client Served & Liberty Manor provided me with a safe place to stay which allowed me to transition back into life.
