4-Star Rating, 4-Years Running


Building Homes for Heroes® (BH4H) is an organization that is an important part of my life.  So it is with great excitement that we can once again claim a Four Star Rating from Charity Navigator.  This is the highest rating that Charity Navigator can bestow on a non-profit.

Why isn't based on more recent data? 


The Charity Navigator logo and tag line speak for itself. This organization is truly anyone's guide to intelligent giving and provides transparent information to know exactly where your donations go.  



"Founded in 2006, Building Homes for Heroes is strongly committed to rebuilding lives and supporting the brave men and women who were injured while serving the country during the time of the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan. The organization builds or modifies homes, and gifts them, mortgage-free, to veterans and their families. These 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. It's our honor to support the men and women who have loyally and courageously served our country."





Thank you to all Building Homes for Heroes® supporters, we couldn't do this without you!

I’m beyond words.”

Take the 11-11 Pledge


Hello, Friends and Supporters;
Fall is a wonderful time of year where we can enjoy the beautiful scenery and harvest the many bounties of the earth.  It also gives us a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the many women and men that have served and continue to serve our country here at home and in distant lands.  With that in mind and as Veterans Day approaches, please help Building Homes for Heroes honor these courageous Americans and take the 11-11 pledge.  Your contribution will positively impact the lives of severely injured veterans and their families by giving BH4H the ability to continue on its mission of gifting mortgage-free homes to these deserving patriots.  You can do this with the knowledge that with a 93% program rating and a Four Star rating from Charity Navigator, your hard-earned dollars are going to the right place, helping the veterans.  With your help, we have gifted over 175 mortgage-free homes throughout the country; help us continue to do this very necessary work.
Stay up to date with all that is going on with BH4H by visiting:

Let's Go House Shopping!

If you're still renting and think owning a home is out of your reach, now may be a good time to give some of our amazing local lenders a call.
HomesFund has a great down payment assistance program that can go with many traditional mortgages and allows many people to get into a home with very little money out of pocket. Credit problems? They can help with those too. Make plans to attend their next Homebuyer Education class on June 8th. Of course, I am ready to work for you as well. It doesn't cost you anything to have a Realtor(R) represent you as a buyer, and I'm happy to help guide you through that process.
Give these folks a call and see how they can help you buy a home!
