Nextdoor and Veterans United team up to support Veterans in neighborhoods nationwide


SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- This Veterans Day, Nextdoor (NYSE: KIND), the neighborhood network, announced a partnership with Veterans United Home Loans, the nation's largest VA purchase lender, to amplify their efforts to support Veteran and military communities across the country by helping Veterans become homeowners.

Together, the purpose-driven companies are launching local Proud Veteran Homeowner Nextdoor Groups in neighborhoods nationwide to connect Veterans and military families to ask questions, share tips and advice, network, volunteer, and plan events together.

Veterans are known for caring deeply about their communities, ultimately going above and beyond to build stronger, more connected neighborhoods. According to the VA, 32% of Veterans work in public service or charitable organizations, compared to 22% of non-Veterans. To show their gratitude, Veterans United will give away 11 homes to Veterans who continue to serve their neighborhoods. Select stories of these incredible Veterans will be featured on ThanksToVeterans.com, including the following:

"Veterans United helps Veterans become homeowners, so we are excited to team up with Nextdoor, a company that works to ensure all neighbors have a supportive community," said Nate Johnson, Chief Retention Officer for Veterans United. "It is especially fitting that we announce this partnership today, as we show our gratitude to Veterans who are often the cornerstones of the neighborhoods they call home. Through this partnership, we will continue to create meaningful ways for Veterans to connect with each other and their neighbors, both online and in-person."

Veterans and their fellow neighbors turn to Nextdoor to offer help to one another, particularly around Veterans Day. In 2020, the number of neighbors mentioning Veterans on Nextdoor was 12 times higher on Veterans Day compared to the weeks before and after. In Houston, TX, for example, Marine Veteran Cody posted on Nextdoor to offer free home repair services during a recent winter storm and received over 450 calls from neighbors in need. Nextdoor neighbor Ann in Alexandria, VA came across a trunk of military memorabilia from World War I in her attic and was able to connect with genealogists and historians thanks to a post on Nextdoor, ultimately tracking down the family to return the heirlooms to.

"Nextdoor's purpose is to cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighborhood to rely on. We have a strong and growing Veterans community on Nextdoor, with Veterans being some of the most dedicated neighbors," said Heidi Andersen, Chief Revenue Officer at Nextdoor. "We are honored to partner this Veterans Day with Veterans United to support their impactful work in giving back to Veterans who have served our country and continue to play a valuable role in their local neighborhoods."

Neighbors can download the Nextdoor app to connect with and support Veterans in their local community. Veterans can find if their neighborhood has a Proud Veteran Homeowners group by visiting nextdoor.com/groups.
