Certified Military Housing Counseling -

How we're funded - For every dollar you donate to a specific need on the YRRN, 100% of that donation goes directly to funding that need. Additionally, the YRRN does not currently charge our Partner Organizations to administer the requests from Heroes. The YRRN is primarily funded through the support of donors by making additional small donations to the YRRN itself for operation and administration. We also raise funds through corporate sponsors, foundations and grants related to our mission in Helping Heroes Afford Life!
