Chaplain Capt. Brenner Campbell, U.S. Air Force
Chaplain Captain Brenner Campbell donated the land and furnishings for the Robert Carter Veterans Transition Home.
And Randy French with Stylecraft Builders built the home.
The Veterans One Stop in Waco dedicated the home January 18 and Campbell returned to Central Texas for the ceremony.
The home will help veteran families struggling with the transition from military life to civilian life, providing all of the resources of the Veterans One Stop.
The goal is to equip them with the tools they need to make it on their own by the end of each family's six to nine month stay in the home.
Veterans One Stop director DeLisa Russell worked with Campbell, French, Lowe's Home Improvement and other community donors to make the dream a reality.
Campbell attended Baylor and worked in real estate development before becoming an active duty member of the Air Force in 2014.
He has served in Afghanistan and also worked to establish a non-profit aimed at helping children called the Children's Mission Network.
The group established an orphan village in Zimbabwe.
Campbell said heliping children of veterans through this project was a natural fit.
He hopes other communities can use the Robert Carter Veterans Transition Home as a template for similar projects across the country.
