Home For Our Troops
Our Mission: To build and donate specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post- 9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives.
Over 2000 Service Members have returned home from post- 9/11 wars with life- altering injuries. these injuries include the loss of one or more limbs, varying levels of paralysis, and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Veterans who fought for our freedom overseas must now relearn skills often taken for granted, like walking, eating, talking and bathing. Their homes are no longer places of comfort and safety and are filled with obstacles that make caring for themselves and their families nearly impossible.
Each single-level home is equipped with over 40 major special adaptations including widened doorways, lowered countertops, roll-under cook top and sinks, and a roll in shower, all designed to give our Veterans full wheelchair accessibility. In cases where a Veteran is paralyzed the home may include specialized items including a lift system and voice activated controls.
Homes For Our Troops donates these homes to our Veterans, allowing them to focus on their recovery and embark on new careers, start or expand families and return to activities they enjoyed prior to their injuries.
Many people are surprised to learn that Homes For our Troops (HFOT) is not funded by the government. In fact, nearly 70 percent of HFOT's budget is generated by individual donors, private and family foundations, and fundraisers nationwide who want to give back in some way to America's Veterans.
