Ashlar Homes Collaborates with Operation Homefront to Support Local Veteran

In December, Ashlar Homes, in collaboration with U.S. Bank and Operation Homefront, welcomed Army Veteran Oscar Perez, his spouse, Kristi, and their children to a new home in the Woodlawn Estates community in Lee’s Summit, Mo. The family received a beautiful mortgage-free home, made possible by U.S. Bank and Operation Homefront.

“To be able to build a house that not only can a family afford but also to build something helpful to someone in the community who has served our country is amazing,” said Shawn Woods, owner of Ashlar Homes. “I’m proud that we can help people establish roots.”

Since the program began in 2012, Operation Homefront has helped more than 700 veterans enter the Permanent Homes for Veterans (PHV) program. The PHV program provides veterans with the opportunity to move into an Operation Homefront home and work directly with caseworkers and other financial counselors to learn and plan for home ownership.

Ashlar’s Lancaster floor plan is a spacious two-story plan with 1,622 square feet of living space, including three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. A discounted home purchase price was made possible by Ashlar Homes, who also gifted the family more than $40,000 worth of select home furnishings and appliances.
