The mission of The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is to honor the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life to save others on September 11, 2001. We also honor our military and first responders who continue to make the supreme sacrifice of life and limb for our country.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation builds mortgage-free smart homes for our most catastrophically injured service members. Each home is custom designed to address the unique needs of each individual. Smart homeshost a myriad of features such as automated doors and lighting, wider halls and doorways, special showers to accommodate wheelchairs, automatic door openers, cabinets, counters, and stove tops that can be raised and lowered, back-up generators, and central heating and air conditioning systems that can be controlled by tablets. These homes enable our most severely injured heroes’ live better, more independent lives.
In 2017, the Foundation has delivered, started construction or is in the design stage of a total of 75 smart homes. We have committed to build a minimum of 200 smart homes for service members who sustained injuries in combat or training for deployment.
