Homes For Our Troops is a publicly funded, not-for-profit organization that builds and donates custom homes for critically injured post-9/11 veterans nationwide.
The press release continued, “Most of these veterans have sustained life-changing injuries, including multiple limb amputations, partial or total paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI).

“These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our veterans sacrificed in defending our country and allow them to focus on their families, their recovery and rebuilding their lives.”
The organization builds the homes where the veteran chooses to live, as their ministries don’t just end there as they continue their relationship in rebuilding their lives.
It has been a very successful cause as nearly 90 cents of every dollar spent since 2004 has gone to the organization’s program services that support veterans.
The 6th Annual Veterans Day Celebrity Auction on eBay starts Thursday, November 3rd at 7:00pm EST and ends Sunday, November 13th at 6:00pm EST, just two days after Veterans Day.
