Helping a Hero.org Wounded Hero Home Program
The Wounded Hero Home Program is our signature homebuilding program for severely wounded heroes injured in the post 9-11 Global War on Terror. Helping a Hero homes are designed to maximize the veteran’s independence. Homes for amputees and wheelchair bound veterans include roll in showers, roll under sinks, an adapted toilet area and other safety features. Burn victims require added interior air protections and heroes suffering from a severe TBI require a hospital quality master bedroom that includes a lift system, oxygen and support for 24/7 telemedicine.
Ordinarily homes are built in master planned communities where the developer donates the lot and the builder builds at cost. Helping a Hero designs the home for that specific hero, raises the funds needed for the project and assists in soliciting in kind donations. The veteran commits to make the Helping a Hero home his/ her primary residence for 10 years, contributes $50,000 to the home and if eligible, the veteran commits the VA Specially Adapted Housing Grant to the project. To date, Helping a Hero has awarded homes in 24 states and is accepting applications for 2022 homes as part of our 100 Homes Challenge.
