All About Homes For Our Troops

The non-profit organization donates specially adapted and custom-built homes for post 9/11 veterans. The goal is for them to rebuild their lives through an easier home situation that adapts to their specific needs.

Most of the troops have suffered from limb amputations, paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, among other ailments. The charity was created back in 2004. Since their inception, almost ninety cents for every dollar donated has gone to the program

After their homes are built in the area of the veteran’s choosing, HFOT still stays in contact with their families.
