Family and friends,
While training for the 2018 Chicago Marathon this October, I have the privilege of fundraising for a fantastic nonprofit organization, Homes For Our Troops (HFOT). HFOT builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. These homes are mortgage free and 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 live. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar donated to Homes For Our Troops has gone directly to its program services for Veterans. In February 2018, HFOT reached the incredible milestone of building its 250th home, and there are currently 96 projects underway Nationwide (https://www.hfotusa.org/building-homes/veteran-home-building-projects/). HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.
HFOT is a top rated charity and has received Charity Navigator’s highest rating of 4 Stars every year since 2008. Charity Watch has awarded HFOT an A rating and included HFOT on its list of Top-Rated Military & Veterans Charities. Here is a link to the latest newsletter:
No amount is too small, and will go a long way in continuing the organization's mission to enable our veterans to rebuild their lives.
Thank you for your support!
