What We Do
Purple Heart Homes assists Service-Connected Disabled Veterans with the necessary steps to purchase a home or renovate their current home so they can live with the dignity and independence they deserve. We can improve veterans' lives one home at a time.
In Mecklenburg County, we have built ramps, widened doorways, and built suitable bathroom additions for the Veterans Aging in Place program. Our second program is the Veterans Home Ownership Program to adapt and modify foreclosed or donated homes that are adapted specifically for the veteran's disability. This is a "hand up" program, not a "hand out" one. The veteran is often inspired to pay it forward and volunteer to help others. The results? Emerging leaders who pay it forward to our communities.
