HOME FRONT – VETERAN HOME REPAIR PROGRAM

Yes, we believe in building the Homefront, the sacred place that provides Veterans with the safety and security they need and deserve.   Our Veterans deserve a a safe and secure home, as they have sacrificed and served America to ensure that we are safe and secure.  In Milwaukee,  we work to keep these homes as functional living quarters for our Veterans and their family members.  Through the handwork of the Veteran community, our partners and dedicated volunteers the HomeFront program provides much-needed affordable housing and helps homeowners and neighborhoods regain a sense of community pride.

The HomeFRONT Program coordinates the volunteers, skilled labor, tools and supplies that are required to renovate, revitalize and renew homes of Veterans in neighborhoods across the Greater Milwaukee area.

The HomeFRONT addresses the challenges of affordable housing for low-income homeowners by improving and preserving their homes. Through the repairs provided by our volunteers, we:

  • Repair low-income, owner-occupied housing, enabling our disabled and senior Veterans to remain in their homes for years to come.
  • Address critical safety issues – falls are a leading cause of injury among older adults.
  • Stabilize living conditions, allowing our Veteran homeowner accessibility and independence.
  • Lower household energy bills by weatherizing homes and replacing old appliances with newer, energy efficient models.

Each tax-deductible donation allows the HomeFRONT to purchase basic supplies to complete our homeowner’s projects. Whether a project is an emergency repair, accessibility modification, or yard maintenance donors are able to experience a full range of involvement.

On behalf of the clients we serve and those waiting to be served; thank you for your investment consideration.
