WHO WE ARE
Since 2006, Building Homes for Heroes® has made the difference in hundreds of lives by building or modifying homes, and gifting them, mortgage free, to veterans and their families across the United States.
Our numbers reached an all-time high in 2015, thanks to the growing support from friends, communities, corporations and supporters. It’s our honor to support the men and women who loyally and courageously serve our country.
2015 Goals and Accomplishments
Building Homes for Heroes® is on pace to complete construction on a record-setting 40 homes in 2015. Of those homes, 28 will be gifted, mortgage-free, and 12 will be modified for our nation’s veterans who are current homeowners.
The President and Founder, as well as all members of the Board of Directors are unpaid. All time dedicated by the members is 100% donated.
