These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, enabling them to focus on rebuilding their lives. 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 has built and donated almost 250 homes in 42 states nationwide. Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar has gone directly to our program services for Veterans, and HFOT is in the top 5 percentile of military and Veteran charities rated by Charity Navigator.
