As part of his pursuit of the Eagle Scout rank, Boy Scout Tim Maron led a two-year effort to build a tiny home for a homeless military veteran — a project realized with the help of Wells Fargo.
Step by step, teenager Tim Maron’s vision of home for a homeless military veteran has become reality in a resurgent, small-town neighborhood once infested with drugs and crime.
Today, that neighborhood is known for its clean streets and renovated homes, thanks to a local nonprofit, and most recently a modest tiny house project led by Maron, 17, a Boy Scout and budding young community leader in eastern Pennsylvania.

Military spouses are the backbone of military families. Studies show that supporting military spouse employment and closing the military spouse un/underemployment gap not only strengthens our nation’s economy, but also improves military readiness.

Although unemployment rates among post-9/11 veterans are improving- from 12.7% in 2012 to 5.5% currently- veterans still face a unique set of challenges as they transition into the civilian workforce. Nearly half of all vets leave their first post-military job within the first year, and many veterans report feeling under-utilized in their careers.
