VETERAN HOME OWNERSHIP

Thru donations or Real Estate Owned properties from banks Purple Heart Homes will take pre–qualified and approved veterans and pair them with a home at the time of donation of pre-approved properties. Purple Heart Homes will then make individual and specific adaptations to the property to meet the veteran’s need. A mortgage of 50 % of the completed appraised value (not to exceed comparable properties in community value) will be obtained for the Veteran.

Program income derived from VHOP provides funds needed for the Veteran Aging in Place Program, making homes for older generation of veteran accessible also. The veteran in VHOP provides the opportunity to “pay it forward” in lieu of funds going to a financial institution; they are funding the rehab of other Service Connected Disabled Veterans’ homes. The veteran in VHOP is encouraged to also work on the project
if they are physically able.

The Veteran Home Ownership Program in simple terms is a Hand-Up not a Hand-Out producing a
positive physiological impact for the veteran to know they are able to provide for themselves and their families—and as has been proven before—it’s appreciated more when the veteran has a responsibility
to use the charitable gift wisely and for its’ intended purpose.
