Homeless Transition Program
A residential program in Denver, CO that houses veterans of the U.S. Armed Services who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
Houses for Warriors is currently in Stage 1 of fundraising for its flagship project in Colorado – The Warrior House Program. The Program is designed to provide stable housing for transitioning homeless and at-risk veterans, along with vocational training and apprenticeships in the construction industry.
Not only will the Warrior House give veterans the opportunity to live with dignity and independence, the house will be a hub for veteran resources – providing everything from job training to help accessing VA benefits to those who live there.
Veterans are 5X more likely to commit suicide if they experience homelessness
According to HUD
Houses for Warriors is a tax-exempt 501©(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting our nation’s military veterans who are in need.
It is our honor to serve our Warriors that have sacrificed so much for our country.
All Charity Partners become part of the HFW Family and our Mission, becomes your Mission!
The Warrior House will house up to 25 veterans while they transition off the streets and into permanent housing. The VA takes approximately 8-12 weeks to secure their permanent housing through the Veteran Affairs HUD-VASH
You help us eliminate the shelter from our Warrior’s transition process. Veterans are five times more likely to commit suicide if they are homeless. The shelter is no place for our veterans. In the Warrior House, Veterans have a place to call home while they wait for their HUD-VASH to process.
Once the VA processes their HUD-VASH and secures housing for our Warriors, we help them move into their new apartment! We organize furniture donations, beds, and all of the things they need to make their new home, their own. Not only do they have a new home, they will have new skills and everything they need to stay on their feet. We offer continued support for 24 months after a successful transition.
Delbert Stracener is an Army Veteran who was diagnosed with spinal cancer in 2016. Del’s home was in dire need of major home repairs and could not afford the cost to fix his home. With holes in the roof, broken skylights, no accessibility and mold spreading throughout the house, we expanded our services to organize a much needed home renovation with community support and volunteers!
With the help of local business like Valor Roofing and Solar, Velux, CO Clean-Up Services, Kycor Plumbing, Waste Connections Colorado and many more, we provided a $97,000 home renovation iin just under 5 weeks with only volunteers!
