Please Consider a Monthly Recurring Donation

Note that the donation form includes an option to make your donation an automatic monthly recurring donation. We appreciate every donation, no matter the amount. However, recurring donations are extremely valuable to us because they provide a predictable baseline of revenue making it easier to plan and be more efficient. Small recurring gifts make HeroHomes less dependent on large fundraising events and keep us focused on the mission every single day.

HeroHomes is a 501(c)3 not for profit foundation established to build houses for those who have fought for the preservation of freedom and democracy for others. These deserving vets and their families cannot regain what they lost defending our country, but we can give them a new start in building a solid foundation for their future and the dignity of an independent life in a wonderful small town community setting. We provide the opportunity for disabled veterans to rejoin society with the security and pride of home ownership.

Hero Home #5 – Ochan House

Sgt. Jimmy Ochan was originally born in Uganda. After high school, he became a U.S. citizen and begun college in Washington, DC. After two years in college, Sgt. Ochan, walked into a recruiting office and voluntarily signed up to join the United States Marine Corps because he wanted to give back to a country that had opened its doors to him as a young man.

Sgt.Ochan was deployed twice to Iraq (OIF-Operation Iraqi Freedom) and once to Afghanistan (OEF-Operation Endurance Freedom) and during patrol was hit by an IED which resulted with several surgeries to his neck/spine and both knees at the Walter Reed Hospital and Fort Belvoir community hospital.

Pat put aside her full-time career to care for her husband. She became very instrumental in creating the first-ever caregiver group in Fort Belvoir to help gather resources for all other caregivers whose loved ones had been injured in combat and were trying to navigate the health care system. Pat currently sits on the Advisory Board for Blue Star Families and has been a Fellow with the Elizabeth Dole Foundation, representing Washington DC, where she was a spokesperson for 5.5 million women and men serving as military caregivers to our nations heroes, she was engaged with national and state leaders to uplift our nation’s military caregivers and helped bridge the critical gaps in services identified in the RAND research, she also served as the Foundation’s closest advisor and awareness partner.
