Chris Landis, an advisor with Goodwill Manasota's Veterans Services Program, was recently honored with the "Hero of the Month" award by Homes for Heroes. Janine Morris, an affiliate realtor with Homes for Heroes, visited with the Veterans Services Program team and presented Landis with his award, recognizing his extraordinary service on behalf of veterans. A colleague nominated Landis for the honor. Homes for Heroes, Inc. is the largest nationwide network of affiliate real estate, mortgage, and local business specialists committed to providing easy ways for heroes - military, firefighters, EMS, law enforcement, healthcare professionals, and teachers - to save on a home. Landis, who has worked with Goodwill since 2017, joined the Army National Guard after graduating from high school. After his military retirement, he received his degree from the University of South Florida and his Master’s degree in Criminal Justice Administration. He then worked with Veterans Treatment Court, helping veterans navigate the criminal justice system, get connected with social services, and get back on their feet.  Launched in 2013, Goodwill Manasota’s Veterans Services Program was created to help eliminate barriers to employment, provide opportunities for higher-paying positions for veterans and their families, and connect veterans with needed social services.
