Floyd Molina Home Project
A disabled veteran is homeless after a fire destroyed his home in northeast Albuquerque, but that’s only half the story.
Floyd Molina’s home sat on property he rents and has been told the charred mess needs to go soon. The disabled vet served in the army for nearly 20 years but now his mementos from his time in the service are gone, his awards and medals.
“Feels like a nightmare, you know?” says Molina
Molina’s story and the need to clear his charred house from the lot he rents caught the attention of local group Heroes Walk Among Us. “We heard about Floyd’s house burning down,” said Shane D’Onofrio, founder of Heroes Walk Among Us. “You have to have community support and veteran’s support to do this.”
D’Onofrio rallied volunteers and local businesses to help demolish the home and excavate the property. Molina said each load that was carried away was a load off of his shoulders.
More than four months after his home was ravaged by fire, disabled veteran Floyd Molina has a place to call his own.
