Are you looking for unique, meaningful items to give this holiday season? Several Homes For Our Troops Veterans make handmade items that are perfect for gifts. The freedom and independence of their specially adapted custom homes give HFOT Veterans the ideal environment to work on their craft.
Here is a list of small businesses owned and operated by HFOT Veterans:
