Solita’s House is a non-profit personal financial education and counseling organization founded in 2006. Initially, the founders wanted to ensure that all people interested in becoming homeowner’s receive the essential education, counseling and knowledge they needed to secure and maintain homeownership. Solita’s House is also focused on immersing people in the “basics” of being economically educated so that they can achieve financial wealth in all areas of their lives.
Post 9/11 Veterans focuses on providing a platform, a starting point, and a place of belonging, where veterans are encouraged to integrate into their local communities and inspire through actions. By building a strong community through social outreach and events, we can change many of the negative stigmas surrounding returning veterans, while positively impacting entire communities.
Founded by two Post 9/11 Veterans, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, our organization was created by the same demographic we are focused on helping. Operating as a Federal 501 (c) (3) Nonprofit, our ability to connect with our peers and our local communities on both a social and personal level is what sets us apart from other established organizations.
SOLITA’S HOUSE KITCHEN PROJECT
With cabinets donated by one of our clients, we were able to outfit and create a full functional kitchen for the crew at Solita’s House. Why this is so important is that Solita’s House conducts several workshops monthly as well as a two week bootcamp for Financially Intelligent Teens (F.I.T.) that shows teenagers how to have a healthy relationship with money as well as helping too prepare them for college. This is the home base for 20 or so students for two weeks every June. AND we know that nutrition is important.

POST 9/11 VETERANS
Ye Krewe of Valor is made up of both military veterans and community members who are proactive in making the Tampa Bay Area a better place for us all.
They put an emphasis in service above self and throughout the year get together to volunteer our time in the community. They pride themsleves in keeping out of pocket cost at a minimum to be part of the Krewe. Instead of high fees and dues that can reach into the thousands, they require Krewe members interested in parade involvement to donate their time giving back to our community.
Post 9/11 Veterans Corp. has quarterly volunteer events and socials all aimed at bridging the gap between our returning veterans and their community.
