Homes 4 Families (H4F) hosted its 2nd Celebs4Vets Build at the Veteran Enriched Neighborhood® in Santa Clarita, California on August 25, 2018. The Los Angeles-based nonprofit empowers low-income veterans and their families to enter the middle class by providing them with affordable housing and holistic services that build resiliency, self-sufficiency and economic growth. Over 20 celebrities picked up hammers and paint brushes, and poured concrete, to build homes, including stars from NBC’s This Is Us and Superstore, CBS’ SEAL Team and Young Sheldon and FOX’s Lethal Weapon.

Celebs4Vets is a membership-based group comprised of representatives of the entertainment industry who subscribe to the Homes 4 Families mission and lend their support by participating in H4F activities, events and programs. The Celebs4Vets Build provided members with the opportunity to help build some of the remaining 18 of 78 homes for low-income veterans and their families in Santa Clarita, California before H4F moves on to build another 56 veteran homes in Palmdale. Celebrities each rolled up their sleeves to spend the day drywalling and painting the interiors of homes while also calling upon their fans to sponsor their efforts.

“We’re thrilled to bring individuals from the entertainment industry together to collaborate on volunteer efforts that we are all extremely passionate about,” said Donna Deutchman, President and CEO. “This build will be a special day for the veteran community as we enter the home stretch on these homes.”
