Homes for Our Troops Mission
To provide mortgage-free, specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured Veterans of post 9/11, enabling them to rebuild their lives.
The MSRT has supported Homes for Our Troops as our charity organization for the last five years. HFOT was founded in 2004, their headquarters are located in Taunton, Massachusetts. Since their inception, HFOT has built 181 specially adapted homes nationwide. Over 90 percent of all donations to Homes for Our Troops goes directly to support our veterans.
One of the more recent homes built in Hopkinton, NH for SSG Matthew DeWitt included a volunteer day on September 20, 2014. Seventeen members of the MSRT joined many others and the crew of This Old House to volunteer their time laying sod in the yard, planting shrubs or digging holes. The dedication day where the keys were handed over to SSG DeWitt and his family was fittingly held on November 8th during NRTW. It was truly a rewarding experience to be a part of this project and see how much this organization means to so many of our wounded troops.
