Thank you for your service
Habitat for Humanity Tucson’s Veterans Build partners with military service members, their families, and the families of the fallen to build affordable housing. We reinforce strength and self-reliance through volunteerism, homeownership, and home repair.
Veterans have an opportunity to complete the requirements of our homeownership program and purchase a new, energy-efficient home with an affordable mortgage.
Habitat Tucson’s Veterans Build officially began in 2013 in response to grassroots Habitat efforts to serve housing needs of returning veterans. Habitat is now empowering military and veteran families to achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives.
Partner with veterans who made a selfless commitment to our country through their service.
