Caliber is Helping Empower Military Spouses

Caliber Home Loans offers more than just homeownership to veterans...we’re also committed to helping military spouses and families feel at home.

Recently, Caliber’s branch in Little Rock, Arkansas partnered with the web series, Moving with the Military, to surprise one deserving military family with a home makeover. During the filming of the makeover, Maria Reed, founder of the Moving with the Military series, collaborated with the Little Rock Air Force Base (AFB) and conducted a Do It Yourself (DIY) community building project. A total of 25 military spouses came together to network and build rustic coat racks.

This was the perfect kick-off for Military May. As you may know, Congress declared May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999. The entire month is set aside to express our gratitude to servicemembers and their families. Joe Gardner, Branch Manager with Caliber and Brittany Hahn Boccher, Caliber’s National Administrator for Military Engagement, assisted with the makeover.


More About Moving with the Military

Moving with the Military is a home improvement and lifestyle web series committed to helping military families turn houses into homes. They help families decorate, and get connected with their new community and get to know other military spouses. This web series gives America an inside peek into military life and the daily sacrifices these families face.

Moving with the Military’s DIY events are held nationwide and encourage military spouses to learn a new skill while fostering relationships that are vital to their mental wellness. These events encourage military spouses to problem solve, network, and feel empowered and motivated.


Answering the Call

The first DIY event was so successful that the Little Rock AFB Chaplain decided to continue the effort. He asked for a community partner to help provide military spouses with the tools they need for future DIY events.

Caliber’s Joe Gardner answered that call. He sponsored 25 DIY tool belts for all 25 of the Little Rock AFB Military Spouses. His generous donation will not only equip the military spouses with the physical tools they need, but it will also help promote future DIY networking events.

As the father of an Army soldier that is currently deployed to Korea, Joe is always searching for ways to show his support. He knows first-hand the challenges and emotional toll that comes with having a deployed loved one. When asked why he answered the call to help, he responded, “I appreciate the families of all military personnel overseas, and feel honored to be able to help in some small way.”

Joe and his team will continue to partner with Moving with the Military and the Little Rock AFB to support community building projects and facilitate future home-buying education courses for the military spouses.
