Veterans Affordable Housing Program Rotating Header Image



For over 40 years I have worked in the manufactured housing industry. My commitment has always been to make quality, affordable housing available to more families. The Veterans Affordable Housing Program is committed to doing just that which is why I’m involved.

I’m pleased our Veterans Assistance Program is helping those who have faithfully served our country to improve their standard of living and realize their own American dream of home ownership, while easing the burden of government.

We invite you to join us in this worthwhile effort.

Garry Edmundson – Chairman/COO
