Builders, tradesmen, and building suppliers building homes…what a perfect way to give back to those who have sacrificed a normal life for our freedom! The purpose for Operation Finally Home is to remove the burden of providing shelter, so that the family can overcome the devastating effects of the war, and move forward with their lives, not looking backward, but looking toward the opportunities ahead. This is a hand-up and not a handout. This is a step in the direction of a rewarding future as productive members of their community. This home will go to a wounded veteran or his family. The home is fully paid for by donations. The family will be introduced in the near future.

And Cypress Creek isn’t just about the homes.

There are the neighborhood amenities, including a junior Olympic-size pool, clubhouse, tennis courts, boat/RV park, walking trails and a separate bike lane. The golf course also is pay-to-play, which means you don’t have to be a member of the golf club to play a round; the public is welcome. The community is less than 30 miles from places like downtown Norfolk and Peninsula Town Center, 40 miles from Williamsburg and 50 miles to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.
