I have seen the faces and expressions of WWII veterans and their wives, as well as Korean and Vietnam veterans and their wives as volunteers with the House of Heroes undertook repairs to their homes, makes their lives brighter. A small way to repay their service to this great nation and a way to say Thank You.
I volunteered for the first time with House of Heroes on New Year's weekend, 2017. It was quite the honor to help the surviving spouse of a World War II veteran. House of Heroes had coordinated with a local church and the youth group showed up in force. My favorite part, however, was not the help that we provided, but the chance for the spouse to share her trials and adventures that she and her husband experienced during World War II and in his continued service afterward. The teens in the youth group caught a glimpse of couple's sacrifices and sense of fulfillment in serving. It left me wondering who was helped more.... I'm very glad House of Heroes makes the connection with the veteran a priority, not just the home repair.
House of Heroes, Inc. Is a wonderful organization that helps and honors our military and public safety veterans. I wish that there were more chapters across the nation so that they could do so much more good works.
My husband was a retired Army major. Do to the effects of Agent Orange on his health he was not able to do much in his later years. House of Heroes, Inc. helped do some repairs to our house that he was no longer able to do. I am not sure how we would have managed the repair with out the support of HOH, Inc.
I believe that what HOH, Inc. stands for is a wonderful endeavor and more people and companies should honor and help our veterans (military and public safety) and/or their spouses as they do.
I am a retired veteran from the United States Army and have been associated with House of Heroes, INC since the beginning of HOH. Without question, this organization is dedicated to those who have served. HOH is a financially lean organization with the abundance of donations and contributions being applied to fulfill the mission, not pay for wasteful overhead. This is a wonderful nonprofit with a passion for taking care of veterans and or public safety retirees.
House of Heroes Chattahoochee Valley Chapter (HOH-CVC) located in Columbus GA is a great organization. Columbus and Fort Benning provide a strong volunteer base and we have an abundance of military veterans, public safety veterans, and their spouses in the area. I would encourage you to come out and volunteer with the organization. Susan Wood (Executive Director) and her staff do an excellent job with the day to day operations. Look us up on the web and look forward to seeing you on a worksite in the near future.
I was young when House of Heroes first started. But I grew up around it and got to truly understand the mission. As I got older I volunteered in the organization, and absolutely loved it! House of Heroes does a great job at honoring our nation's veterans something that doesn't happen as much as it's deserved. When the work is done the veterans are so thankful for what we have done but it's us who are thankful for their service and sacrifices.
I have become very skeptical of non-profit organizations. I am sick of ads asking for money and finding out they spend it on fundraising and themselves and use creative accounting to make it look like they help others.
House of Heroes actually goes to the homes of needy veterans and performs a valuable service at NO COST to the veteran. Paint their house, fix their plumbing, fix a leaking roof, tangible benefits to our beloved veterans.
I am proud to support HOH by working on the homes of our veterans and giving my financial support!
I was there for the inception of this organization. I have watched it grow from something very small to a great organization that has the potential to grow even more with people spreading the word and supporting the organization. The organization has helped over 800 veterans and/or their spouses since 1999.
My father and mother were one of the veterans that were assisted by this organization. My father was a US Army Major Retired who served several tours in Vietnam. He contracted Agent Orange and lived with shrapnel along his spine. As he got older the effects of the chemicals and shrapnel interfered with what is was able to do.
For someone to take the time to help a veteran and show their appreciation for their service is a wonderful thing.
I hope that this organization can expand to more cities and states across the nation. The impact it has on veterans and/or their spouses is life changing. I believe that this organization should be helped to grow so that they can change the life of more veterans and/or their spouses.
