    Operation Finally Home is a charitable organization founded in Houston in 2005 to provide custom-built, mortgage-free homes to America’s military heroes and the widows of the fallen. They have since built hundreds of homes across the country for wounded warriors and their families.

    The organization recently completed a home in Round Rock to be presented to U.S. Army Spc. Nick and U.S. Army Spc. Shelby Nelms. Shelby was injured by an IED while serving in Afghanistan.
