“The individual housing units proposed by Homes For Heroes will provide veterans with a better sense of security and community than what is traditionally found in an apartment complex. Former sailors, soldiers and airman/airwomen who have put their lives on the line for our great country will take pride in their new surroundings and feel they are contributing to society.”

“Many Canadians return from war and find it difficult to reintegrate into society. Too many suffer from post-traumatic stress, physical injuries, or other difficulties. Often, their most basic challenge is finding a place to call home. With the security of a roof over their heads, we give our veterans a solid foundation from which to re-enter everyday life and seek other forms of assistance as necessary.”
Roger Chaffin, O.O.M.

We have watched the Homes For Heroes initiative blossom over the past two years and are proud to support such a well thought out project. This initiative will ultimately provide a place to call home for those who have given so much for their country.”

“Your Homes For Heroes Foundation could not have come at a better time, with more than 2,500 Canadian veterans enduring homelessness, often in addition to concurrent mental and physical injuries sustained in service to their country.
Shelter is a fundamental building block in re-establishing a life after their military service. With stability at home, our veterans have a fighting chance to transition to civilian careers while restoring their health in other areas.”
