How to Donate

Please send all donations to our local chapter:
HFOT c/o Mr. & Mrs. John Skelton 5108 97th St E Bradenton, FL 34211


To build and donate specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely Injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild
their lives. The Veterans Homes For OurTroops (HFOT) serves are among the nation’s most severely Injured with missing limbs,
varying levels of paralysis, blindness and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

About Our Specially Adapted Homes

Each home is equipped with over 40 major special adaptations and exceeds ADA compliancy standards, providing full accessibility for
the Veteran. These adaptations include wider halls and doorways; automatic door openers; roll under sinks, stove tops, and counters;
pull down shelving, generators and safe rooms, all designed to help the Veteran live independently. HFOT builds four-bedroom, two
bath, specially adapted energy efficient homes of approximately 2,800 square feet, the right size home for a Veteran to comfortably
raise a family while limiting expenses for utilities.

Building Homes and Rebuilding Lives

Despite their life-altering injuries, many of our Veterans have embarked on new careers, completed their college degrees, and started
families. Empowered by the freedom a donated specially adapted custom home brings, our Veterans can now focus on their recovery
and returning to their life’s work of serving others. Many have embraced their roles as motivational speakers, sharing their messages
of persevering through adversity with groups and classrooms around the country; others take to a national platform to promote
awareness of Veteran suicide, homelessness and PTSD. Their Incredible stories are the driving force for the work we do at HFOT.

Building on Success

As of May 2020, HFOT has built and donated 294 specially adapted custom homes nationwide. Currently, there are 81 Veterans on
our active project list. Our goal is to build a home for every Veteran who qualifies for one of our specially adapted homes.
