HFOT Mission

Mission: To build specially adapted homes for severely injured Veterans across the nation to enable them to rebuild their lives.

Purpose: Homes for Our Troops is a privately funded national non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with serious  injuries since September 11, 2001. We assist severely injured Veterans and their families by raising awareness, community involvement, money, building materials, and professional labor, and by coordinating the process to build a specially adapted home.  Our homes provide the Veterans security, maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently.  These homes are provided at NO COST to the Veterans we serve, removing the long-term financial burden of a mortgage, and enabling them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives.

Vision:  To ensure all of our severely injured Post 9-11 Veterans live in specially adapted homes to afford them the opportunity to rebuild their lives.

Core Values: Homes for Our Troops CARES about our Veterans, their families, and the communities in which they live.  Our Core Values reaffirm our commitment to the Veterans we are privileged to serve, our donors, volunteers, and our people, who are the cornerstone of the organization.  We are dedicated to accomplishing our mission through their support. Our Core Values motivate our actions daily as we work to give back freedom and independence to severely injured Veterans through the gift of specially adapted homes.
