Forte Cunningham

Forte Cunningham, the founder and CEO of Passion Over Profit, Paper Revival, and NuRow Productions, has a remarkable career journey that has shaped his mission to support veterans and the homeless community. Growing up in a military family, Forte spent 12 years overseas in Germany before returning to the United States for college. While completing a master’s in justice studies degree with a concentration in CyberSecurity from Southern New Hampshire, Forte had the opportunity to travel to the Middle East, where he gained a third-world perspective on the world.

 

Inspired by his family's military background and his firsthand experiences abroad, Forte became determined to make a difference for homeless veterans. Witnessing the struggles of his fathers, both 100% disabled veterans, Forte resolved to create a nonprofit organization to address the issue of veteran homelessness. Passion Over Profit Inc., founded in 2015, aims to end homelessness among veterans by providing housing assistance and support services. Forte's innovative approach involves purchasing land to build housing facilities for veterans and offering them opportunities to participate in building and growing organic food, providing both sustenance and income.

 

What sets Forte apart from others who aim to remedy the problem of homelessness is his unique approach to empowerment. “I believe in fostering ownership and collaboration by involving individuals in the creation process,” Forte shares. His vision involves not just providing housing, but also creating opportunities for sustainable livelihoods.

 

Forte's dedication to empowering the homeless community extends beyond Passion Over Profit. Through Nu Row Productions, he facilitates veterans' rights to homeownership. His plan is to initially purchase homes and transfer ownership to veterans as they make payments. Additionally, TSG offers a financial literacy app to help low-income individuals manage their money effectively, while Paper Revival addresses environmental concerns with a patented invention for paper recycling by combining the properties of a printer shredder and paper making machine all into one.

 

In addition to his entrepreneurial endeavors, Forte serves as the regional sales manager for LaborMAX Staffing®, where he can continue his passion of helping low-income  individuals secure employment and regain stability. Through his multifaceted approach, Forte is making a tangible difference in the lives of veterans and the homeless, embodying his belief that everyone deserves a chance to rebuild their lives. Forte emphasizes the importance of community involvement and welcomes suggestions and ideas from others to further his mission. He encourages collaboration and believes that by working together, we can create a brighter future for those who have sacrificed for our country. Through his tireless efforts, Forte Cunningham is not only transforming the lives of veterans and the homeless, but also inspiring others to take action and make a difference in their communities.
