The Harry Donovan Jr. Valor Home of Summit County is a transitional housing program for homeless male veterans. We help our residents through structured and engaging therapies such as art, music and life skills therapy on-site four days a week. Our support workers offer advocacy and encouragement to our residents.
The Harry Donovan Jr. Valor Home is a drug-free, alcohol-free, and smoke-free facility. Valor Home provides support services to residents both on-site and in the community. Each resident is assigned a support worker. Daily routine includes self-improvement activities, exercises in self-sufficiency and personal time.
Harry Donovan began his first job at age 11 and proudly showed his mother his earnings; she insisted that he tithe 30% to the church. That was the beginning of the generosity that has continued his whole life.
At age 17 he enlisted in the Navy to protect the America that he loved. He earned a Purple Heart for his service and also learned valuable skills he later took to his business as a CPA.
Throughout his life late Harry Donovan gave to many with love and a belief in helping his fellow man without any reluctance. Valor Home is indebted to Harry Donovan for his generous support that combines two of his great passions- feeding people and helping veterans.
At the Valor Home our veterans receive three meals a day, making a lot of dishes to wash by hand. We are raising money to help fund the purchase of a commercial dishwasher for our veterans. This page will also contribute to the everyday necessities, around the home, that we are in need of. Consider following in Harry's footsteps and donating to the men that put their lives at risk for our country.
