Homes for Our Troops
Homes For Our Troops mission is to build and donate specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives.
Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was started in 2004 by a Massachusetts general contractor who offered to build a Massachusetts Army National Guard soldier a specially adapted custom home. The soldier, who had been injured in Iraq, agreed to have him build the home on the condition he do the same for other acutely injured Veterans.
HFOT provides assistance to the most severely injured military service members who have been wounded in the Iraq and Afghanistan theaters of war since September 11, 2001. HFOT assists injured veterans from all branches of the U.S. Military.
After receiving a specially adapted custom HFOT home, a large portion of Veterans regain a substantial amount of independence. More than 80 percent of HFOT home recipients say they are able to heal in a safe environment and over 90 percent of veterans say they regained freedom and independence after receiving a custom home from HFOT.
