Here at Trident, we believe in giving back. Through our many years serving both active duty and former military, we have met so many amazing people, heard their incredible stories and have seen first hand the lifelong effects of their service.
While we take joy in being able to help these people achieve homeownership, we also feel there is more we can do. We have chosen 2 fantastic organizations that are working hard to help veterans. We at Trident are committed to giving $250 of every closed transaction to whichever of these 2 charities our client chooses. We also urge everyone to check out their websites to see the great work that is being done. Here is more information about the programs:
UCLA Operation Mend is a groundbreaking program that provides military personnel with severe facial and other medical injuries access to the nation’s top plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Established in 2007 by philanthropist Ronald A. Katz and his wife, Maddie, the program is a partnership with UCLA Health, the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System and Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.
All services are provided free of charge to military men and women. Donations to the program help pay for such expenses as the surgeries themselves, patient evaluations, transportation and housing for the patients and their families, care coordination and a multitude of additional patient services. As of November 2015, 135 patients from all branches of the military had participated in UCLA Operation Mend, which is funded almost entirely by private donations.
