Homes for Veterans, a 501c3 non profit organization, modifies the homes of disable veterans to create barrier-free living at no cost to the veteran or their family. Many of our disabled veterans return from combat and risk reinjury in their own homes. They also become dependent on family members to complete everyday tasks such as bathing and cooking. Homes for Veterans funds barrier-free projects such as ramps, wheel-chair accessible showers, walk-in tubs, lowering cabinets, widening doorways for wheel-chair access, etc.

Our applicants suffer from injuries that are not always service related which creates a “barrier” to accessing help from other organizations, such as the VA. We are a merit based organization and our mission is to alleviate as many barriers as possible, including in the application process.

I am Francesca DiPaola, Chair of Homes for Veterans. My father, Douglas DiPaola, founded HFV 10 years ago. I am saddened to say, I lost my dad suddenly to COVID19 in April. Although extremely heartbroken, I decided to step up to fulfill my dad's dream of helping as many veterans as possible. My dad founded this organization as a way to thank our veterans for their sacrifice and service. He insisted the veterans never thank us, that it was our job to serve them. If you would like to join me in thanking our veterans and carrying on my dad’s mission and legacy please reach out using the information below.
