Purple Heart Homes
About Purple Heart Homes
We are Veterans. We are also the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, spouses and those who are proud to have a connection to our nation’s military. Join our family and help us provide much needed assistance to Veterans of all eras.
Purple Heart Homes is a 501(c)3 public charity that was founded in 2008 by John Gallina and the late Dale Beatty, two combat wounded Veterans. After being injured in Iraq in 2004, they returned to their community and received a warm welcome and grateful appreciation for their service. They began to question why all Veterans didn’t get the same levels of support and assistance from society.
The answer isn’t easy, but Purple Heart Homes fills the gaps in housing through the Veterans’ Aging In Place and Veterans Home Ownership Programs. From building a ramp for a Veteran of World War II, to providing home ownership opportunities to younger Veterans, our programs are designed out of necessity and fit the specific needs of the Veteran population.
How We Help
Purple Heart Homes fills the gaps in housing through the Veterans’ Aging In Place and Veterans Home Ownership Programs. From building a ramp for a Veteran of World War II, to providing home ownership opportunities to younger Veterans, our programs are designed out of necessity and fit the specific needs of the Veteran population.
Purple Heart Homes has two different programs that might be able to help. A Purple Heart is not required for either program. The applicant must pass a personal background check. If applying for the VHOP program, credit checks will also be conducted. We carefully review all requests from interested Service Connected Disabled Veterans who wish to be considered for either of our programs.
VAIP – Veterans Aging in Place – This program is designed for Service Connected Disabled Veterans who currently own their home and who need help with renovations or repairs to make that home safe and accessible.
VHOP – Veteran Home Opportunity Program – This program is designed for Service Connected Disabled Veterans who are either ready for the responsibility of home ownership, are looking for a rental home, or are interested in a Tiny Home. This program matches a qualified Veteran with a home that will meet their needs. The VHOP Program is limited by the homes we have available. Keep in mind our home inventory is constantly changing.
The application process includes a personal background check and credit checks. An internal committee will review all documentation to determine eligibility.

- Signed Background Consent Form (will be emailed)
