The support we receive from donors and sponsors has enabled us to acquire land, build homes, and help rebuild lives. The impact of our accessible homes for injured veterans cannot be overstated. Our accessible homes are making lifelong differences for our injured Veterans and their families.

Once our Veterans move into their safe and fully accessible homes, you see hopes and dreams once again become a part of their lives. They are able to attend school, obtain jobs, expand families, launch businesses, compete athletically, and even climb mountains. Their caregivers are under much less stress and able to accomplish life goals as well.
