Consider this charity when you're trying to decide where to give.

http://buildinghomesforheroes.org/

Building Homes for Heroes is a national non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2006.
We provide individuals, corporations and others with an opportunity to help our severely wounded and disabled veterans and their families rebuild their lives. Building Homes for Heroes is committed to supporting those who have returned home from the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan with severe wounds and disabilities, with a goal to build homes for families in dire need. It’s our honor to support those who have been called upon to make a tremendous personal sacrifice.

Organizational Statement

Since 2006, Building Homes for Heroes has been at the forefront of making a significant difference in the lives of the severely-wounded men and women of the military. We build homes from the ground up or modify existing homes to meet the needs of the brave men and women who have selflessly served our country. These mortgage-free homes not only help to remove the family’s financial burden, they help to restore the individual’s freedom, and enable the veteran to lead a more independent and productive civilian life.

During the fiscal year ended 12/31/2010, Building Homes for Heroes simultaneously worked on five home projects for severely-wounded veterans of the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan. This includes completing projects that began in 2009, breaking ground on new projects, and selecting new recipients and searching for locations for their homes. Building Homes for Heroes expects to complete four home projects in 2011, and is optimistic about building or renovating 8-10 homes per year beginning in 2012.

Building Homes for Heroes operates with two compensated employees and hundreds of volunteers. Neither the president nor the board members are compensated. The organization strives to keep its overhead costs down and has been successful in achieving this goal. Building Homes for Heroes attained a program service percentage of 87% in 2010. This figure measures the percentage of Building Homes for Heroes’ expenditures that went directly toward program-related activities.

Building Homes for Heroes encourages the wounded veterans we have assisted, or are currently assisting, to travel to our events and take part in other organizational endeavors. Because these men and women are service-oriented individuals, they are pleased to support other Afghanistan and Iraq war veterans who have been severely injured. This enables the veteran to take another step toward being defined by their activities and not their injuries or disabilities.
