Roofs for Troops Comes to Charlotte

Snapped at the Monday Night Football matchup between the Carolina Panthers and the New England Patriots: Nehemiah Community Reinvestment Fund (NCRF)'s Darrell Teat and recently widowed Army veteran Kira Ortega, with her son Caleb, just after she received keys to her new home in Charlotte. California-based NCRF, which makes short-term loans to create or preserve affordable multifamily and single-family housing nationwide, established Roofs for Troops last year to provide residences for veterans. Roofs for Troops facilitated the donation of the Bank of America property and coordinated home renovations with Charlotte-area contractors. This is the org's first home donation in partnership with Bank of America and the National Community Stabilization Trust. (Factor in a huge Panthers win and it was pretty good night.) Photo: NCRF
