Houses for Warriors strives to improve the quality of life for disabled and homeless veterans in need through adaptive housing and housing resources. We do this through:
Houses for Warriors is tax exempt 501©(3) nonprofit organization that aims to help injured veterans obtain suitable housing by providing transitional housing services and affordable housing options for our Warrior Graduates, veterans, and military families. We buy, fix, and sell VA-approved houses to our veterans and military families that are using their VA home loans, and use our profits to expand our homeless transition programs nationwide.
Houses for Warriors was founded by Andrew Canales, an Iraq War Veteran who was diagnosed with PTSD after his first deployment in 2008. Andrew struggled with PTSD for seven years before an accident that broke his legs and nearly took his life– combined with struggling with homelessness himself– led him on a path of healing and ambition. He has been a personal advocate for veteran’s benefits and has assisted many with obtaining benefits for school, home loans, and disability claims. As an Ambassador for K9’s for Warriors, a nonprofit that provides service dogs to disabled veterans, since 2018, he continues to give back to the veteran Community any way he can.
With Houses for Warriors, Andrew coordinates with property owners, donors, community leaders, and business owners across the country to create strategic partnerships and opportunities that serve our veterans and those involved. His main goal is to improve the quality of life for every veteran who is struggling.
