From the President and CEO: HFOT embarking on 15th Year

Categories: Blog, Home

The start of every new year here at Homes For Our Troops is a reason to celebrate, but 2019 is a special year. February 4, 2019, marks the 15th Anniversary of our organization’s inception. All of you – our donors, supporters, corporate partners, volunteers – have played a part in expanding our critical mission of building and donating specially adapted custom homes to severely injured post-9/11 Veterans throughout the years.

What started as an offer from a Massachusetts general contractor to build a home for an injured Soldier back in 2004, has evolved into a thriving organization with over 60 employees, building 20 – 30 homes for severely injured Veterans each year. This, of course, could not have been possible without you, our valued mission supporters. An organization with an undertaking such as ours needs more than a dedicated staff – it needs individuals, organizations, and communities with compassion and an understanding of the challenges injured Veterans experience when returning home. Thank you for being one of these great Americans whose belief in our mission has propelled us to where we are today.

Throughout the year, you can expect to see special features highlighting our 15th Anniversary, including testimonials from our Veterans and important milestones we have reached. We are excited to celebrate this occasion with you, and hope it will inspire you to reaffirm your dedication to our cause by continuing to support our Veterans through donations, fundraisers, build events, and as corporate partners.

“Thank you” does not convey the deep appreciation we have for your support over the past 15 years. We look forward to Building more Homes and Rebuilding more Lives with you for many more years.
