Scott Youngren and Youngren Construction have been passionately involved in building as a general contractor for Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) since 2010. The entire Youngren team considers it an honor to serve veterans who have selflessly served their country. Building in San Diego County, Riverside County, Orange County and San Bernardino County has allowed Youngren Construction to do what we do best – get the job done right!
HFOT is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization building specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for the most severely injured Veterans from post 9/11. Most of these Veterans have sustained life-altering injuries including multiple amputations, partial or full paralysis, or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed defending ours, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 percent of donations to Homes for Our Troops has gone to directly support Veterans.
HFOT builds homes as a departure point for these Veterans to rebuild their lives, and once again become highly productive members of society. Despite their life-altering injuries, many of our Veterans have embarked on new careers, completed their college degrees, or started families. Empowered by the freedom a mortgage-free and specially adapted home brings, these Veterans can now focus on their recovery and returning to their life’s work of serving others.
Representatives from Homes for our Troops got together with several home recipients, their families, key volunteers, and Youngren Construction employees and subcontractors for an evening at Ponte Winery in Temecula.
