Christopher Todd Communities

Christopher Todd Communities will give a post-9/11 veteran “A New Lease on Life” by providing a rental home for one year free, followed by two years of reduced rent.

The home will be located at Country Place on 99th Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road in Tolleson. The deadline for the home giveaway is September 17. To apply, visit christophertoddproperties.com/our-giveback.

“We are honored to provide a helping hand up to a veteran who has sacrificed to preserve our freedom,” stated Todd Wood, CEO of Christopher Todd Communities, in a press release. “We hope this gift gives them the time to pursue their education or get the training they need to successfully launch into civilian life.”

Last March, the Arizona-based company gave U.S. Marine Corp veteran Jonathan Hancock a rental home in Surprise as part of the program.

To further its mission of helping those in need, Christopher Todd Communities started the veterans pricing program, which allows them to rent homes at a discount. It is available at all Christopher Todd Communities in the Valley.

Veterans eligible for the home giveaway and pricing program must hold a rank of E-6 or below, have been honorably discharged (or within 90 days of exit from the service), have served during the post-9/11 era “with a direct connection to supporting one of the active war campaigns during service time.”

Proof of service, an essay and short answer questions are required.

Christopher Todd Communities offers rental homes consisting of one-story, one- and two-bedroom homes with private backyards, doggy doors and washing machines. The housing communities also include an event lawn, resort-style pool and evening courtesy patrol.
