There’re “Five C’s” every mortgage loan officer (LO) looks for when qualifying a borrower. They are Credit, Capital, Capacity, Collateral and Character. My last Blog covered Credit and the importance of preplanning for your home purchase. This time around, I’ll focus on the importance of Capital or in my best Read More

The creation of “El Dorado Veteran Resources – A Permanent Stand Down” powered by Military Family Support Group (EDVR) is now a reality. We have support from veteran service organizations, Our Savior Episcopal Church, and our local El Dorado County Veteran Affairs Office, we have office space generously donated by the Veteran Memorial Building House Council, we have a groundwork of services already in place with Military Family Support Group, and we have big plans. It is time to move forward getting this greatly needed service office launched.

We have a soft opening date set for Monday, November 13.

This new office will work to create an active network of providers offering services, information, and/or products for veterans and military families. We hope to be able to help with any type of question or request a veteran may have (except for VA Benefits which will only be handled by the El Dorado County Veteran Affairs Office) or have referrals for any type of service needed, provide food, clothing, temporary shelter, transportation, financial aid, etc. This will evolve over time, but for now we have a specific starting point of services from which we hope to expand. To do that, we need help!

You are invited to volunteer and play a role in building something lasting and great for the Veterans of El Dorado County!

We are seeking RELIABLE individuals willing to commit a substantial amount of time:

A. We need to staff a walk-up window
(2 volunteers/5 days a week (shifts: M-F 9:00-Noon and 1:00-4:00);

B. We also have openings for grant writers, web page/social media manager, information manager, design/graphics, network developers willing to create contacts and relationships within our community, etc.;

C. If you would like to offer services at reduced prices or free for veterans, please let us know so we can add you to our network!

D. We will provide group training free of charge and a background check will be required for all volunteers (EDVR to reimburse cost);

E. We would like the very first group of volunteers to help create the “EDVR Volunteer Hand Book”;

If you’d like to join us in making a difference for our veterans, please let us know ASAP.
