Veteran women’s activist killed in Pace car crash
PACE, Fla. (WKRG) — A woman who started a nonprofit to help homeless female veterans was killed Monday morning in a car crash.
“We always walk numb,” Pollyanna Neely said.
Neely first met Nancy Bullock-Prevot over 20 years ago in the Navy. They were part of a mentoring program for women and Neely chose Bullock-Prevot as a mentee.
“I chose Nancy and we’ve been friends and family ever since,” she said.
She was proud of the work done by Bullock-Prevot to establish the Honor HER Foundation in Northwest Florida.
“By taking care of women, she took care of families,” Neely said.
The organization focuses on providing resources to women who are military veterans. In 2019, she opened Faith House, a place for homeless veterans to live until they can get back on their feet.
“It was her belief and her vision that female veterans should always have a place to go and she didn’t call it a haven,” Neely said. “She called it a home.”
Bullock-Prevot was 46 years old. She was driving her Vanderhall three-wheeler on the Chumuckla Highway in Pace when troopers say she crossed the center line and crashed into a truck.
Bullock-Prevot’s friends and family will continue the work she began to bring hope, honor and dignity to struggling female veterans.
“We’re committed to keep going, we’re committed to keep going,” Neely said.
Bullock-Prevot was widowed and leaves behind two daughters.
