HOMES FOR OUR TROOPS: BUILDING HOMES AND REBUILDING LIVES
HFOT builds homes as a departure point for these Veterans to rebuild their lives, and once again become highly productive members of society. Despite their life-altering injuries, many of our Veterans have embarked on new careers, completed their college degrees, or started families. Empowered by the freedom a mortgage-free and specially adapted home brings, these Veterans can now focus on their recovery and returning to their life’s work of serving others. Many have embraced their roles as motivational speakers, sharing their messages of persevering through tragedy with groups and classrooms around the country; others take to a national platform to promote awareness of veteran suicide, homelessness and PTSD. Their incredible stories – far too numerous to include on one page – are the driving force for the work we do here at HFOT. We encourage you to read more about their amazing stories in this website.

FOODBANK OF SIOUXLAND: TAKE “WORRY” OFF SOMEONE’S PLATE, & ADD “NUTRITION”
For many families and senior citizens in Siouxland, the worry of keeping the heat on and paying the rent weighs heavily. Do the bills get paid, or do we have food for dinner? This is a question many of us don’t have to ask, yet there are so many asking it. In fact, there are 28,620 food insecure individuals in Siouxland needing our help.
By supporting the Food Bank of Siouxland, you can help fill the plates of our neighbors with food instead of worry. You can help them choose both heat AND dinner. You can help eliminate some of those tough decisions and fulfil their most basic need. You CAN make a difference.
