Building Homes for Heroes

For the past five consecutive years, Building Homes for Heroes has nearly reached a record goal on a national scale of gifting one mortgage-free home every 11 days, on average, for our nation’s injured veterans and their families. With much hard work ahead, these proceeds would help us reach that goal and make dreams come true for so many of our nation’s heroes, and would allow us to gift our milestone 300th home in the year 2021. Above and beyond building homes, we’re rebuilding lives and we’re also helping our heroes reach dreams they never imagined when injured, including helping them find employment and start new businesses, win gold medals in the Warrior Games and Invictus Games, pursue higher education, and we’re helping them reach new heights – literally – like climbing the highest mountains in the world, among them Mount Denali in Alaska, all the while helping families bond like never before.
