About Homes For Our Troops


Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is a publicly funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans to enable them to rebuild their lives. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives.

Chip in for Our Troops


Building a specially adapted custom home at no charge to a deserving Veteran takes funding. When you select the Flare Account Homes For Our Troops Debit Card1, you help make more homes possible.
