Every Hero Deserves a Home. Help Provide Mortgage-Free Homes to Deserving Veterans.
A Hero's Home
A Hero's Home has partnered with Operation Homefront and REI Nation to provide newly renovated homes to military families in need.
A Hero’s Home was founded in 2018 by real estate investor executives Chris Clothier with REI Nation, Jay Hinrichs with JHL Capital Partners, Brian Burke with Praxis Capital, Brandon Hall with Hall CPA and Tom Gimer with Masters Title & Escrow. Their simple mission: to give back by providing military families with a home of their own, free of charge.
After raising funds from donors across the U.S., A Hero’s Home partnered with REI Nation to select and renovate a single-family home in Memphis, Tennessee. The organization also identified Operation Homefront as the partner to generate awareness of the home’s availability through their national outreach efforts. Since 2012, Operation Homefront has worked with more than 700 veterans as part of its Permanent Homes for Veterans program in addition to other programs supporting both veterans and active military service members. At Operation Homefront, 88% of expenditures go directly toward delivering programs and services to the military families who need it most.
Operation Homefront caseworkers and financial counselors work with recipients to learn about and plan for the responsibilities of home ownership so that they are set up for success in owning a home of their own. The home is then deeded free of charge to military recipients based on financial need as well as their proven ability to maintain the home and manage insurance and tax payments on an ongoing basis.
A Hero’s Home would like to thank everyone who donated toward this initial gift of a home, and we encourage further donations as we work to continue honoring worthy veterans and their families with the momentous gift of a home and community.
Acquiring the Perfect Property
A Hero’s Home sets regular financial goals in order to purchase homes in cities across the U.S. When the financial goal is met, a property is purchased through partner company REI Nation.
Processing Veteran Applications
After a property is selected and purchased, any needed renovations are completed. Post-inspection, the home is deeded to and listed through Operation Homefront, who then begins the veteran outreach process.
If you know an active, retired, or honorably discharged veteran who is in need of a home, please encourage them to visit Operation Homefront for a complete list of resources, including access to short-term and long-term housing.
Celebrating with a Key Ceremony
Through Operation Homefront, a veteran is chosen and awarded a residence, free of charge. This is a special opportunity to introduce a military family to their new home and the beautiful city in which it’s located. Our first home is located in Memphis, Tennessee, and is scheduled to be given to a military family in the fall of 2022.
