Homes For Our Troops is a national non-profit organization founded in 2004 strongly committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with serious injuries since September 11, 2001. Homes for Our Troops restores freedom and independence to severely injured veterans through the gift of a specially adapted home. The organization assists severely injured veterans and their families by raising money and coordinating the process of building a home that provides maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently. The homes provided by Homes for Our Troops are given at NO COST to the veterans served.
Note: An eligible veteran or service member may receive a Veterans Administration Specially Adapted Housing Grant up to a maximum amount of $64, 960. Homes for Our Troops' assistance covers all costs over and above this grant to ensure that the home is provided at no cost to the recipient. .
Famous quotes containing the words troops and/or homes:
“I have lived long enough: my way of life
Is fallen into the sere, the yellow leaf;
And that which should accompany old age,
As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends,
I must not look to have.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“I had the idea that there were two worlds. There was a real world as I called it, a world of wars and boxing clubs and childrens homes on back streets, and this real world was a world where orphans burned orphans.... I liked the other world in which almost everyone lived. The imaginary world.”
—Norman Mailer (b. 1923)
