Wounded Hero Home Program
Helping a Hero provides homes to severely wounded heroes to equip them to transition successfully and succeed in life. Through the Wounded Hero Home program, Helping a Hero builds specially adapted homes that allow our wounded warriors to be as independent as possible and place these homes in planned communities or in areas where they have ongoing support from various organizations and community members.

Bass Pro Shops 100 Homes Challenge
In May 2021, noted conservationist and Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris joined with Helping a Hero to gift 10 new specially adapted homes to wounded warriors. The first home recipient is deserving amputee, Marine Sergeant Joe Bartel of Aberdeen, North Carolina. Additionally, Morris recently announced that Bass Pro Shops will cover 25 percent of funding for the next 100 donated homes to encourage Americans to get involved in Helping a Hero’s Wounded Hero Home Program.
