Homes for Heroes program offers homeowner savings
STEVENSVILLE — Inspired by the tragic events of 9/11, Homes for Heroes was started in Minneapolis, MN, at the beginning of 2002. In 2009 it grew to become a national organization that has since helped more than 14,500 heroes and given back over $22,000,000.
Homes for Heroes’ mission is to provide extraordinary savings to heroes who provide extraordinary services to our nation and its communities every day. Heroes include: firefighters, law enforcement, military (active, reserves and veterans), health care workers, EMS and teachers.
Homes for Heroes is comprised of affiliate real estate and lending specialists across the country along with local and national businesses committed to providing Hero Rewards, which are easy ways for heroes to save significant money on a home; and when they make every day home-related purchases. When working with Homes for Heroes real estate and lending specialists specifically, heroes are able to receive significant savings when they buy, sell or refinance a home.
“We’re committed to giving back, serving and saying thank you to our local community heroes because they do so much to make our great community what it is today. They tirelessly serve and sacrifice for us that we feel it’s just the right thing to do and we’re excited to be able to give back and say ‘Thank You’ in such a meaningful and positive way,” said Petra Quinn, local Homes for Heroes real estate specialist in Stevensville.
Every time a hero uses Homes for Heroes for their real estate transactions, they are helping heroes in need. A portion of Homes for Heroes’ earnings is donated to the Homes for Heroes Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that provides assistance to heroes in need.
