Waukesha Veteran Surprised With New Home

Joe Davis was in the Army for more than 11 years. He was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, which affected his mobility.

Operation Finally Home worked with Belman's Homes to provide the Davis family a new home. 

"It means everything," said Carissa Davis, Joe's wife. 

The organizations said after he heard about Joe's story they knew they wanted to help. 

"Now you think about the fact that he is going to be able to put his kids to bed and be able to get around the house," said Molly Halliday, Operation Finally Home.

This organization has worked to provide homes for veterans across the country. So far, Operation Finally Homes has built more than 200 homes and now workers are building the fourth in Wisconsin. 

"It will be perfect for him and his family. They will have a yard to play in and to be able to see that transform for them and how it affects their lives is important to me," said David Belman, President of Belman Homes. 

Construction workers expect to break ground in June 2017 and hope to finish it by Spring 2018. 

"It's a big relief and having access to get around easier and knowing whatever happens with Parkinson's Disease in the future, we will be ready for it, " said Joe Davis. 

Operation Finally Home gets funding from donations in the community. If you'd like to help out and help another veteran, visit: https://www.operationfinallyhome.org/
