Homes For Our Troops is a publicly funded nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide to severely injured post-9/11 Veterans.
The press release continued: ‘Most of these Veterans have sustained life-altering 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.’
The organization builds the homes wherever the Veteran chooses to live as its services do not just end there as they continue their relationship in the rebuilding of their lives.
It has been a very successful cause as nearly 90 cents of each dollar spent since 2004 has gone to the organization’s program services which support Veterans.
The 6th Annual Veterans Day Celebrity Auction will launch on eBay on Thursday, November 3 at 7pm EST as it will conclude on Sunday, November 13 at 6pm EST just two days after Veterans Day.
