About Home Partners
Matt Bourgery grew up in the suburbs of New England.
His mother was an LPN at the VA hospital in Bristol, Rhode Island, working nights so she could be at home for her children during the day. His father, a Marine officer and reservist, became a National Service Officer in the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), first in Providence, RI, but then at the VA Hospital in White River Junction, Vermont for close to 20 years. Matt graduated from high school there, and the Green Mountain State still has a firm hold on his heart. It was while in high school that Matt first began to volunteer at DAV, an experience in the value of service that has stayed with him ever since.
After high school, Matt became a part-time student at the University of Rhode Island. He used his spare time to explore Providence and Boston, when he wasn’t supporting himself and earning his tuition by delivering pizza. It was then that he met – and quickly fell in love with – Sandra Scubla, a waitress in the same pizza parlor.
Her grandparents on both sides immigrated from Italy when her parents were teens and settled in the Bronx. The Italian population was growing in the Bronx back then, and it was the right place to start a family. After her parents met and married, they continued to live in the Bronx until Sandra was about eight years old. The Bronx was changing by then, with more and more Italians moving up and out. Wanting a better life for his children, her father worked day and night to save enough money to move the family to Long Island. He was a vice president in the international banking industry, working closely with the Federal government to regulate those banks in the U.S. Sandra’s mother worked for Chase Manhattan Bank in customer service for a while, but when her sister decided to open her own women’s boutique, she decided to change careers and help her out. By the time Sandra met Matt in the pizza parlor, her family were settled in Long Island, her mother was working with her aunt at the women’s boutique, and Sandra was a Hotel Management major at Johnson & Wales University in Providence.
“It was easy to tell I was in love,” Matt remembers. “I didn’t know what I didn’t know until I met Sandra. We had fun working together, then started dating.”
But finances intervened. Matt needed to find a better way to pay for his tuition and board. Taking a clue from his father’s experience, he joined the Air National Guard and flew off south to boot camp, technical school, and a year of active duty. The separation only strengthened their bond:
Sandra: When Matt left for boot camp, I felt as though someone had died. We had become such a part of one another lives.
Matt: I was very lonely, too, and didn’t want to date other girls.
Sandra: We wrote daily and spoke weekly – our phone bills were tremendous back then but we worked it out. Those calls were more important than food! I even visited a few times while he was in Mississippi.
Matt: My bachelor days were readily abandoned. I never looked back.
