We are proud to announce that a new homeless Veteran home is in the works for the Fort Hood area - the Mrs. Elizabeth "The Hug Lady" Laird Veteran Home established by Operation Hug A Veteran!
Operation Hug A Veteran will purchase the Mrs. Elizabeth "The Hug Lady" Laird Veteran Home in the Fort Hood/Killeen area of Texas in December 2018. This home will support 3-5 homeless female Veterans and their children by providing rent & utilities free of cost for two years as the Veterans establish their families with jobs, education, etc. provided by VA support.
Just like non-profit organization Operation Hug A Veteran, the Mrs. Elizabeth "The Hug Lady" Laird Veteran Home will be established in honor of the Fort Hood Hug Lady.
Please follow the OHAV donation link to help this cause of supporting homeless female Veterans and their children. Our goal is $150K which will cover the cost of the home, furniture, and beds for the Veterans and their children. The home will be painted yellow and a plaque in place with recognition of The Hug Lady during a grand opening in 2019!
