Specially Adapted Smart Homes

We’re constructing one-of-a-kind specially adapted smart homes for our nation’s most severely wounded heroes. This initiative predominantly supports our Post 9/11 defenders, that were injured in combat operations or during training while performing their duties. These 100% mortgage-free homes ease the daily challenges faced by these heroes and their families who sacrifice alongside them.

Program Highlights

Daily Challenges

The simple tasks of everyday life are easy to take for granted. But living in total reliance on caregivers for even the most mundane and sometimes very personal tasks is a reality for many severely wounded heroes. This is especially true at home.

More Than a House

Home is where we take comfort from the world. For our severely wounded heroes, however, life at home can be a constant battle. Without features designed for their unique needs, small chores can become insurmountable challenges.

A New Beginning

Our specially adapted smart homes provide a safe haven for these heroes to reclaim their independence. Built from the ground up with their individual needs in mind, these homes alleviate stress on the entire family.

The Stories

After investing so much time and training for that level in special operations, my career was over in a few seconds. You start thinking, ‘How will I provide for my family?’ But the house you built for us knocks down the obstacles most people wouldn’t think about. I don’t worry about limitations or disadvantages.
