Homes for Our Troops
The Virginia Association of REALTORS® has established a year-long sponsorship of Homes for Our Troops. Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded non-profit organization that operates nationally to build mortgage-free homes for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. REALTOR® members of VAR’s 2015 Leadership Academy initiated a fundraising effort to launch the partnership with Homes for Our Troops, encouraging donations from hundreds of REALTORS®, friends, and industry peers. The VAR Board of Directors approved a major contribution to Homes for Our Troops, emphasizing the role of REALTORS® in impacting the lives of their neighbors throughout the state. The sponsorship is part of VAR’s ongoing commitment to advocating for housing opportunity and community enhancement, and especially to ensuring that safe and secure homes are available to Virginia’s Veterans and active duty military. Nearly ten percent of Virginia’s eight million residents are Veterans or members of the Armed Services.
