Please join your host SUSAN KNOWLES with her guest JOSHUA MACIAS on Stand For Truth Radio on Monday, February 27, 2017. Joshua Macias will be speaking about issues important to all Veterans and to all Americans who love our Veterans.

Joshua Macias shares the grand vision for ending Veteran homelessness across the nation. Following his honorable discharge from the Navy, Joshua had the same experience as every transitional Veteran – he was a hardworking veteran with a strong résumé but no job.

Now, as an expert in business systems and Veteran housing, with over four generations of family involved in real estate, Joshua is an experienced and creative housing crisis problem-solver.

In addition to 16 years of grassroots, faith-based, and nonprofit service,  Joshua founded Vets For Trump in 2016 to insure the Veteran Voice was heard. In fighting the homeless housing crisis Joshua’s contributions started by volunteering as a Project Manager with the 2011 Virginia Beach Extreme Home Makeover project.

Continuing as Co-Founder of Veterans Homefront whose team was honored as a key instrument in the 100 day governor challenge in 2014.  This success allowed Virginia recognition to be the only one to reach functional zero in Veteran Homelessness.  Most recently Joshua was honored to be designated as Chairman of the Veterans For Trump Coalition growing with his team the largest Veteran Coalition seen since World War II around a President.

Joshua spends his days speaking to business owners, congressmen and women, cabinet members and their policy makers alike.  Working with the Vets For Trump team he maintains communication with 500,000 grassroots Veterans asking for change in their backyard through Vets-For-Trump.com.  Alongside 2nd District Congressman Scott Taylor Joshua looks to create jobs supporting the DOD as well as our Veteran Communities. As a Bio-Technology innovator Joshua continues on his track for PhD in Industrial and Organizational Psychology working on projects in B.C.I (Brain Computer Interface).

As a father of three young boys, Joshua believes in modeling philanthropy and has devoted his time to creating housing solutions across the country. He hopes to set an example, for both his sons and others in the community, by establishing a legacy of Veteran housing assistance, Veteran Activism, Technology and Social Integration.

The Virginian-Pilot

The two men arrived in a black car, stepping out into the driveway of a row of brick townhouses. They were headed for the one with the flagpole, where the Stars and Stripes waved in the breeze.
Instead of walking in the unlocked front door, the pair, both wearing sport coats and dress shirts, waited sheepishly outside. After years of having nothing but hard times, the new home almost didn’t seem real, and they kept waiting for something to get in the way. Frank Tolbert, who also wore a dress hat, shuffled his feet. Sandy Williams Jr. used an incoming call on his cellphone as an opportunity to pace nearby.
If all went as planned, the two veterans would share the home within a few weeks – the last step on a journey that included years of homelessness and time in shelters and transitional housing. They’ve lost their way and found it again, and the home represented a fresh start. This ribbon-cutting on Veterans Day made it official.
The home would stand for something else, too, though the pair didn’t know it yet.
More cars pulled up, and out spilled caseworkers, contractors and members of four organizations who helped rehab the house for the men. Then Justina Glover arrived, with her two granddaughters and her sister.
“Would you like to take a tour?” one of the builders asked her.
She walked into a room with freshly plastered walls. She gazed at the fireplace, then up at the skylight.
“This home is for Jamel?” she asked.
Earlier this year, her son, Navy veteran Jamel Glover, committed suicide. The home was dedicated to him and featured a plaque commemorating his struggle.

Justina Glover walked through to the kitchen, with sparkling new countertops, appliances and dark-stained floor.
“Wow,” she said.
Williams made his way inside and warily eyed the growing crowd of guests.
“We better be careful, or they’ll try to take it from us,” he said.
But when he found out about Glover and her son, his eyes grew wide:
“Wow, I didn’t know that.”
The 75-year-old served in the Air Force from 1956 until 1962. He didn’t get married until decades later, when he was 54. He and his wife moved to Virginia Beach and had a son. Then he “caught a bad break.” He got involved with drugs, which led to his marriage splitting up. He became homeless and got in trouble with the law. He hasn’t seen his son in 20 years.
Williams thought his life was over, but hope arrived. He found help from the Judeo-Christian Outreach Center and got a spot in their veterans supportive housing. He is grateful for this home, as is Tolbert, a Navy veteran. They know it’s a big part of what’s keeping them from the streets.
They picked out their bedrooms on previous visits – Williams will get the one in the back. He needs a bigger closet because he has a lot of clothes, he said. Plus, Tolbert works as a chef, so he won’t wake Williams if he comes and goes at odd hours.
The roommates are growing closer.
“I’m learning more about him; he’s learning more about me,” Williams said.
And he’s excited that his son might visit from North Carolina. He was the one Williams was talking to on his cellphone outside.
The group gathered around the flagpole. More of Glover’s family and friends had arrived, and people spilled into the neighbor’s driveway.
Organizers unveiled Jamel Glover’s plaque, with words from the letter to Veterans Affairs he had in his pocket when he died. The last line read, “I refuse to live the rest of my life an addict and homeless.”
Though the flag was already flying, organizers pulled it down and raised it again. Some faintly sang “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Then they handed Williams and Tolbert their keys. Cellphone camera shutters clicked away.
Glover wiped her eyes. Williams started putting his key on his key chain.

VIRGINIA BEACH – With a little more than a day left, the crew and volunteers at the Extreme Makeover site in Va. Beach are working to beat the deadline.

Friday morning at 6:15 a.m., crews were putting in the driveway and landscaping at the new home.

The Hill-Burdette family is due home on Saturday afternoon. It’s going to be quite a different house home from the one they left a week ago.

Joshua Macias with JEB Development is on the team that’s installing something unique to the family’s needs.

“We helped to work on the whole salon. There’s actually a nail salon right behind the garage. It’s pretty amazing. There’s going to be custom tile all throughout, electrical, plumbing, a nail bath. It’s pretty cool to see the design that was put into it as well as a powder room, the bathrooms downstairs,” he said.
