Ola Mae Ransom stepped out on faith after her two sons had returned from Vietnam changed men. They were both diagnosed with PTSD and Ola Mae tried to find resources and services to help them.
When she found out that these services didn't exist, she founded her own organization to offer these services, Alpha Omega Faith Homes. The organization started in a single duplex. Alpha Omega Faith Homes was the first non-profit agency specializing in services for homeless veterans. This was a place they could go after completing treatment at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Memphis, TN.
