Nonprofit offers mortgage-free homes for veterans, service members

Washington National Guard veteran Keelan Southerland and his wife, Arlene, are the first family in the United States to occupy a donated house from Homes for the Homefront.

The program offers mortgage-free homes for veterans and members of the armed forces who meet certain criteria. It was set up with the gift of 100 houses from JPMorgan Chase to Operation Homefront, a San Antonio, Texas-based charity.

Keelan Southerland served in Iraq in 2008 and 2009. He sustained back and eye injuries that eventually required him to be medically evacuated. The Southerlands have moved into their Liberty Lake house, north of Spokane, Wash.
