Heidrea for Heroes to Hold First-time Home Buyers Seminar for Veterans January 20


Heidrea for Heroes, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing resources and support to military men and women facing challenges and hurdles after transitioning back to civilian life, announced today that the organization is holding a first-time home buyers seminar for veterans. This free seminar will take place on Wednesday, January 20, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Massasoit Community College, One Massasoit Boulevard, Brockton, Massachusetts.

This seminar, part of Heidrea for Heroes’ Success Readiness Seminar Series (held in partnership with Massasoit Community College), is designed for veterans and their spouses and will answer many common home-buying questions, as well as include an overview of loan options specifically available to military veterans. Jennifer Oldfield, a mortgage consultant from Bristol County Savings Bank, will lead the interactive discussion, and talk about the benefits of owning a home, the steps in buying a home, pre-qualification versus pre-approval, the “four Cs” of loan decision-making, comparisons of loan products, fixed rates versus adjustable rates, and affordable housing programs.

Pizza will be served at the seminar, and all participants will be entered to win a $25 Best Buy gift card. To register for the seminar, or for additional information, please visit www.heidrea4heroes.org/seminars/ or call 774-773-3951. Advanced registration requested.

The Heidrea for Heroes’ Success Readiness Seminar Series offers a program each month on a dedicated topic that will aid in workforce readiness and life skills development, designed specifically with a veteran’s perspective in mind.

About Heidrea for Heroes, Inc.

Heidrea for Heroes was founded by Marine Corps veterans and small business owners/partners Jesse Brown and Mathew Mastroianni, who are also partners in a telecommunications firm. Both, as veterans, understand the issues of transition from military to civilian life – and they have formed this non-profit organization to provide vital support services to veterans. With offices in Plymouth’s Cordage Park, they seek volunteers and investors to help them realize their dream; they recently received a $40,000 donation from the New England Wireless Association. Heidrea for Heroes provides adaptive home and vehicle modifications, wheelchair ramps, mobility equipment, and individualized veteran/family support that aim to inspire and motivate veterans and families to move forward through transitions. Heidrea for Heroes has an application process for veterans in need of assistance and welcomes Massachusetts veterans of any age to submit. Applications and more information about the organization can be found online at www.heidrea4heroes.org, or you can call 774-773-3951. Family/friends of veterans can also inquire or apply on their behalf. Heidrea for Heroes maintains offices at 10 Cordage Park Circle, Suite 224, Plymouth, MA 02360.
