COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The House of Heroes is back at work repairing homes for military and public safety veterans. Crews pulled out their hammer and nails for renovations on two homes in Columbus Saturday.
The group teamed up with a local roofing company for the roof work. They also reframed the front porch, painted the inside and installed new kitchen cabinets.
Founded in January 2000, the House of Heroes is a nonprofit organization serving our nation's military and public safety veterans (and their spouses) who are disabled, living on a fixed income, or facing other physical/financial challenges.
To qualify for assistance in the program, one must:
- Be a military or public safety service veteran, or their spouse.
- Need financial and/or physical assistance with home repair.
- Own and occupy the home to be repaired.
