What is Homes for Heroes®?
Shortly after 9/11, Homes for Heroes, Inc. was established as a way to give back and say “Thank you” to local heroes for all they do. We provide Hero Rewards®, which is an easy way for heroes to save on a home, and on every day home-related purchases. Our heroes’ jobs are to help others. Ours is, too. With gratitude, we honor the selfless service of true heroes— firefighters, EMS, law enforcement, military (active, reserves and veterans), healthcare professionals, and teachers —by giving back. When a hero buys, sells or refinances a home with Homes for Heroes, they make it possible for us to help more heroes and hero organizations. That’s just like our heroes. Always helping.
Who qualifies as a Hero?
Current and former firefighters, EMS, law enforcement, military (active, reserves and veterans), healthcare professionals and teachers qualify to receive Hero Rewards.
What are Hero Rewards?
Hero Rewards are the savings we provide to local heroes when they work with real estate and/or mortgage specialists like me and they receive the following:
- Hero Buys a Home: Hero receives a check from Homes for Heroes in the mail
- Hero Mortgage: Hero receives reduced lending fees
- Hero Sells a Home: Hero receives reduced real estate service fees at closing
- Hero Refinances a Mortgage: Hero receives reduced lending fees
- Hero Purchases from Business Affiliate: Hero receives special hero deal determined by the business
How much could a hero save by working with you?
The Hero Rewards amount will vary for each hero. There are several variables that go into it, such as whether you want to buy or sell, and the price of the home, but if you visit HomesForHeroes.com and use the estimation slider you can get an idea.
What do Business Affiliates provide heroes?
All of our business affiliates provide special “Local Deals” available 24/7. Our network includes national brands such as Target, Under Armour, Carhartt and Columbia. It also includes local businesses that provide title services, moving services, security services and products, legal services, home inspections and insurance (title company, fees).

What is the Homes for Heroes Foundation?
The Homes for Heroes Foundation is a charitable nonprofit helping heroes in dire need as it pertains to housing or emergency financial assistance. Homes for Heroes, Inc., donates a portion of its earnings to the Homes for Heroes Foundation. That means every time a hero buys or sells a home with Homes for Heroes, they are helping heroes in need. The Foundation awards Hero Grants to local nonprofits nominated by Homes for Heroes specialists. Since its founding in 2009, the Foundation has awarded over $500,000 to help heroes.
