About Homes for Our Troops
Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) is a national non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2004 which supports Veterans Post-9/11 and their families by building mortgage-free, specially adapted homes nationwide. Most of these Veterans have sustained life-altering injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives. Since its founding in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar donated to HFOT has gone directly to our program services for Veterans. Year to date, HFOT has built 187 specially adapted homes nationwide.
