The home is part of Habitat Newark’s “Veterans Initiative” in partnership with the non-profit GI Go Fund in Newark. The home, with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, will accommodate people with disabilities, including wider doors and wheelchair accessibility.

The home will be constructed through the hard work of corporate partners, volunteers and the veteran who will ultimately purchase the home.

“TD Ameritrade is proud to be an engaged corporate citizen, working to build better communities through our continued partnership with Habitat for Humanity,” Bradley said. “Since 2008, our Associates have shown an incredible spirit of volunteerism helping to build Habitat homes across the country.”
