“Homes For Our Troops”

June 23, 2008

A feel good story if there ever was one!

A spanking new home for a veteran of war

National group, local builders give a special residence to Roberts
JOHN A. ANDERSON

I spent June 13 in the company of some extraordinary individuals.

They were exceptional for what they had accomplished individually and collectively on behalf of a wounded veteran and his family, who are quite remarkable themselves.

I attended the ceremony where Sgt. Jonathan (Jon) Roberts was presented the keys to his specially adapted home by the Union County Home Builders Association and a national organization called “Homes for Our Troops.”

The house is in south Waxhaw, adjacent to the home of Jon’s grandparents and his aunt. It is spacious, airy, sunlit and carefully designed to give Jon freedom of movement with his motorized wheelchair.[…]



Learn About Homes for Our Troops

Homes for Our Troops is a non-profit, non-partisan 501 (c)(3) organization founded in 2004. This organization is strongly committed to helping those who have selflessly given to their country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries. We assist severely injured Servicemen and Women and their immediate families by raising donations of money, building materials and professional labor and coordinating the process of building a new home or adapting an existing home for handicapped accessibility.

*All services provided by Homes for Our Troops are at no cost to the veterans we serve.

Giving Opportunities

For your convenience, we offer a variety of ways to donate to Homes for Our Troops.

When you make a donation to Homes for Our Troops, you are enabling us to help more severely wounded veterans and their families. Without your help, our American Heroes will have a much harder time trying to transition back into the life they face with their new disabilities and injuries. We can help them get on the road to recovery faster by taking the burden and worry of making their home handicap accessible to suit their needs.
